Welcome to the Park Lab!
The Park Lab started in January of 2020.
We are interested in designing new porous electronic materials. We utilize these materials as tools to address scientific challenges in sustainable energy and human health-related applications.
Primarily, we will focus on metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) and their heterostructures or composites to explore their new photonic/electronic properties. Our research will also involve methodology development and in-depth characterization to advance materials development.
