Joonbaek Jang received his B.S. from Korea University in 2016. He then moved to the University of Pennsylvania where he obtained his M.S. working with Prof. Raymond J. Gorte. During his master’s degree, Joonbaek used atomic layer deposition to modify metal oxide catalysts for the improvement of industrial catalytic processes. In 2018, he joined the Morales-Guio Lab in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UCLA. Joonbaek is currently working toward the understanding of electrode/electrolyte interfaces and mass transport effects in electrocatalytic processes for sustainable energy applications.
Kangze Shen received his B.S. in Materials Chemistry from University of Science and Technology of China in 2018. His undergraduate research with Prof. Yitai Qian focused on the development of high-performance electrode materials for rechargeable Li-ion and Na-ion batteries. He then joined the Morales-Guio Lab in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UCLA where he is working toward the understanding of electrocatalytic processes and electrochemical systems engineering in sustainable energy applications.
Carlos G. Morales-Guio is an Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UCLA. The Morales-Guio Lab is interested in electrochemical catalysis, particularly with respect to energy and chemical transformations for sustainable energy applications. The lab is currently focused on understanding fundamentals of mass and charge transport coupled to electrochemical transformations that will guide the scale up of electrocatalytic reactors. Carlos received his B. Eng. degree from Osaka University in 2011 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from EPFL in 2013 and 2016, respectively. Most recently, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford University before joining UCLA in 2018.
