The Engineered Interfaces for Sustainable Energy (EISEn) Group, directed by Dr. Sami Khan, is based at Simon Fraser University in the School of Sustainable Energy Engineering in Vancouver, Canada. As the need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and curbing greenhouse gas emissions grows, sustainable energy systems face obstacles towards conversion rates, selectivities to products of interest, and longevity and reliability in operation. We endeavour to address these challenges by studying fundamentals in surface and interfacial science, wettability, fluid mechanics, electrochemistry, reaction engineering, and catalysis and devising innovative solutions driven by creative interfacial engineering methods.
