Motivation: Renewable energy sources and a steady supply of clean water and food are key to a sustainable society. 

Challenge: The yield and selectivity of multistep processes are hard to optimize because multiple pathways operate simultaneously.

Question: Will dividing multistep chemical transformations into individual steps enhance the selectivity and yield of the overall process?

Direction: The ET ​lab will devise continuous-flow platforms to facilitate multistep electrocatalysis central to the widespread use of renewable energy schemes and the catalytic upgrading of feedstock chemicals into value-added commodities. This modular approach will allow for the optimization of the selectivity and yield of each individual reaction step.

Strategy: Tandem Electro-reforming
1. Mitigates carbon wastes
2. Utilizes plastic wastes and biodiesel by-products as carbon sources
3. Lowers demand on fossil
4. Beyond circular economy​
