Shane Ardo is an assistant professor of chemistry at UCI. Shane’s materials invention uses sunlight to drive a novel ion-pumping mechanism that could be used to boost the power output and efficiency of electrochemical technologies. His new materials will also enable sustainable, affordable and efficient polymeric devices to desalinate water for human consumption and agriculture with the potential to help solve the severe worldwide issue of clean water scarcity.
