Dr. Tyler Mefford

Tyler joined the Chueh group in October 2016 after completing his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry under the guidance of Prof. Keith Stevenson at the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, he graduated with a B.S. in Chemistry from Stanford University. He works on developing advanced electrocatalysts for alkaline water splitting as means of storing renewable energy in chemical fuels. His current projects focus on the use of operando X-ray spectromicroscopy to probe the roles of physical, chemical, and electronic structure on electrocatalytic activity. In his spare time, he enjoys skateboarding, gardening, playing guitar, homebrewing, and hiking with his girlfriend and his dog Linus Pawling.
