Two of the most pressing challenges facing society today are the sustainable, economical, and efficient uses of energy and water resources. The Arges Research Lab investigates and invents new electrochemical materials for energy conversion and storage and chemical manufacturing and separations. The research carried out in the Arges Laboratory relies upon a multi-disciplinary approach spanning polymer physics, lithography, electrochemical engineering, transport phenomena, and advanced metrology (e.g., GI-SAXS).
This faculty member is associated with the Penn State Intercollege Graduate Degree Program (IGDP) in Materials Science and Engineering (MatSE) where a multitude of perspectives and cross-disciplinary collaboration within research is highly valued. Graduate students in the IGDP in MatSE may work with faculty members from across Penn State.
