Welcome to the Brushett Group!

Welcome to the Brushett research group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT! Our mission is to develop transformative electrochemical technologies that enable a sustainable energy economy. Our approach is interdisciplinary as we draw from chemical engineering, materials science, electrochemistry, organic chemistry, mechanical engineering, and economics to develop new materials, processes, and devices harnessing electrochemical phenomena.  We are particularly interested in understanding and controlling the fundamental processes that define the performance, cost, and lifetime of present day and next-generation electrochemical systems. Presently, we are pursuing research on redox flow batteries for grid storage and on electrochemical upgrading of low-value feedstocks.

Mike successfully defended his thesis! Congratulations to Dr. Orella!!!

Kara, Tom, Yasser, John, and Fik are publishing a paper in the Journal of Power Sources (currently in press) in collaboration with Robert Darling from the United Technology Research Center. Congratulations!!!

The Brushett Group welcomes three MIT undergraduate students, Destinee, Hong, and Nicole, to the lab! Welcome!!

The Brushett Group goes skiing in Maine to promote both lab culture and camaraderie!
