The central aim of the Ardo Group research program is to understand and control spatiotemporal mechanisms and dynamics of non-equilibrium processes relevant to desalination, atmospheric water harvesting, solar fuels devices, photovoltaics, electrolyzers, fuel cells, and electric heat pumps.
7/1/2020: The Ardo Group's collaborative publication with Muhammed Musthafa. O. T.'s Group at IISER Pune titled "An Electrochemical Neutralization Cell for Spontaneous Water Desalination" is accepted for publication in Joule. Congratulations, Zahid (IISER) and the rest of the team!
