A. Shoji Hall
Anthony Shoji Hall is an assistant professor of materials science and engineering. His research group investigates chemical reactions catalyzed by solid surfaces to address problems in renewable energy storage and utilization.
Hall’s strategy toward the design of high-performance catalysts begins by understanding the surface chemistry of materials through the utilization of thermochemical methods, electro-kinetics, and in-situ/ex-situ spectroscopy. Other aspects of his research involve designing new materials with interesting properties by mesostructuring and controlling material composition and understanding charge separation processes at metal/semiconductor interfaces for surface plasmon enhanced photoelectrochemical devices.
