Sean Doris' research interests are rooted in the applications of materials chemistry and electrochemistry. As a member of the Electronic Materials and Devices Laboratory, he is working to develop materials and processes that enable next-generation printed electronics.
Previously, Sean worked to develop and study materials for energy storage and conversion at UC Berkeley. In his graduate work, he invented a new method for controlling the surface chemistry of nanocrystals, studied the effect of electrolyte additives on the electrodeposition of energy storage materials, and helped develop a new class of membranes for redox flow batteries.
Dr. Doris holds a Ph.D. and B.S. in chemistry from UC Berkeley and UNC Chapel Hill, respectively. He has been honored with the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship and has multiple publications and patent applications related to surface chemistry, energy storage, and materials chemistry. In his free time, Sean enjoys reading science fiction and dystopian novels, as well as playing strategy games.
