Rational solutions to interfacial problems in energy and sustainability

The Interface Design Lab is focused on developing and disseminating cutting edge research in the areas of renewable energy, electrochemistry, and corrosion prevention.  Our strategy is to develop and utilize novel characterization methods to clearly understand reasons of failure, inefficiency and poor performance. Using this foundation we then design rational solutions to challenges facing society.  The laboratory is led by Kevin N. Wood, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at San Diego State University.
