The Nanoscale Energy and Interfacial Transport (NEIT) lab directed by Dr. Damena Agonafer is focused on development of novel materials for the areas related to electrochemical energy storage, thermal management of high powered micro and power electronics, and water desalination by tuning and controlling solid-liquid-vapor interactions at micro/nano length scales.

Moving In

By Matthew Tibbetts on January 27, 2017

Our lab is finally up and running, and more equipment is coming in every day. Check the photos on the Tools and Facilities page to see how things are looking. Stop by Greene 3003 on Danforth Campus and take a look. There’s always someone hanging around breathing in that new lab smell.
