Pietro Papa Lopes

Assistant Scientist


Pietro Papa Lopes is a materials electrochemist at the Energy Conversion and Storage Group at the Materials Science Division. His current research interests focus on understanding electro-chemical conversion, materials stability, and in situ synthesis processes that occur at the electrochemical interface in fuel cells, electrolyzers, and both aqueous and non-aqueous batteries.
