Andrew, Cody and Emmett join the group!

Andrew, Cody and Emmett join the group as first-year Ph.D. students! They will be working on several projects involving selective methane oxidation, multifunctional catalysis and photocatalysis. Welcome to the group, we look forward to working with all of you!

Joseph Maalouf is a SUPER scholar!

Joseph Maalouf has been selected for a SUPER scholarship by the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford! Joseph will spend the Summer with us working on promoted bimetallic systems for methane activation. We look forward to it!

Cargnellogroup officially opens the new lab!

The Shriram Center celebrated the new 6 groups that start working in the building. The Cargnellogroup has finally moved into its new home, the Cargnellolab, where great science and fun will mix for many years to come! Come visit us in room 384 of the Shriram Center!

Funding from the Natural Gas Initiative

The group starts work on the conversion of methane into methanol and other liquid fuel thanks to a grant from the Natural Gas Initiative at Stanford!

Welcome Liheng!

We welcome Liheng Wu as new member of the group! Liheng is a post-doctoral scholar jointly advised with Christopher Tassone at SSRL/SLAC. He will be working on the synthesis and in-situ characterization of nanocrystals. Liheng comes to us from Brown University where he completed his Ph.D. with Prof. Shouheng Sun. Welcome, Liheng!
