Dr. Ayon Karmakar

Year joined the laboratory: Feb 2023, Postdoctoral Scholar

Major: Chemistry

Hometown: West Bengal, India

Why I joined: Being an electrocatalyst enthusiast, always love to play with materials to achieve excellent electrocatalytic activities for clean Hydrogen production through Water Electrolysis. I have a keen interest to learn and experience the membrane-based electrolyzers in view of practical applicability and for which TEEL at UC Merced is an excellent research group to fulfill my future interests. Further, the opportunity to work and learn from an expert like Prof. Chuang would also enrich my knowledge. I wish to explore innovative materials and grow altogether with other lab-members at TEEL. My current expertise lies in design and fabrication of electrocatalysts, materials characterization, and electrochemistry.

Research interests: Materials engineering, Electrocatalysis, Green Hydrogen, Water and CO2 Electrolyzers (AEM & PEM), Electrochemistry.

Future Goals: To be an independent researcher in the field of renewable energy technologies to alleviate the fossil fuel dependency.
