Expertise and Interests: 

Kelsey Stoerzinger’s research interests span the (electro)chemical transformation of molecules into fuels, chemical feedstocks, and recovered resources. Special emphasis is put on the use of abundant elements to drive these reactions in an economical and scalable manner by renewable electricity. Surface science approaches are used to probe the reaction mechanism by in situ and operando X-ray and vibrational spectroscopies. In 2021, she received the NSF CAREER award for her work in seawater electrolysis.
