Welcome to the GENELab

The Green Energy and Novel Electrolytes Lab at Tufts University seeks to develop an understanding of how solution-processed materials, including nonvolatile and flexible ionic liquid- and deep eutectic mixture-based gel electrolytes in particular, can be effectively designed and incorporated into novel electrochemical devices for the efficient storage and responsible use of electrical energy. From a chemical engineering perspective, we seek to discover, better understand and improve upon a variety of next-generation technologies for energy applications. Our research efforts are driven by the significant challenge facing the world today to develop cleaner, safer, and more sustainable energy solutions.
