PostDoc, Molecular Foundry
Material Science Devision LBNL
one cyclotron road, MS67R2206
Berkeley, Ca 94720

Sara did her PhD at the Universidad Autonoma de Mardrid in the group of Rodolfo Miranda. She is a Marie Curie Fellow and her core project is to develop an understanding between the local electronic structure on a catalyst and the local photocatalytic reaction rate.

 

JiyeDr. Jiye Lee
