Sanghun Lee is a postdoctoral researcher in NREL's Chemistry and Nanoscience Center. His research focuses on various coating techniques to fabricate polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells and electrolyzers. He explores rheological properties of various ink formulations and correlates the ink properties to electrode coatings. One of his major research interests is roll-to-roll coating for manufacturing fuel cells and electrolyzers at low cost. Prior to joining NREL, he focused on a range of research for fuel cells and electrolyzers, including nano-catalyst syntheses by combustion method, electrode development by electrospinning, solid oxide fuel cell fabrication by roll-to-roll tape casting and various coating methods, fuel cell stack/system design based on computational simulations, and energy economic analysis.
