Texas A&M Energy Institute Graduate Fellowships
The Texas A&M Energy Institute offers graduate fellowships to reward excellence in energy research, promote future research that is important to our energy future, and encourage students to pursue careers in energy. Each graduate fellowship consists of a stipend and becomes effective for one year. These fellowships are made possible through the generosity of ConocoPhillips and MP2 Energy.
All full-time doctoral students who perform energy research and whose primary advisor is an affiliated faculty member of the Texas A&M Energy Institute are eligible for the fellowships funded through the generous contributions of ConocoPhillips.
MP2 Energy Fellows
All full-time doctoral students who are conducting research in the electric power sector and whose primary advisor is an affiliated faculty member of the Texas A&M Energy Institute are eligible for the fellowships funded through the generous contributions of MP2 Energy.

"Rational design of stable MOFs for carbon capture and methane storage"
As an emerging class of novel materials, metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs) have attracted great interest in the last few decades. Their modular nature endows these materials with structural diversity and tunable functionality. My research focus is on exploration of tailor-made MOFs for different energy related applications, including methane storage and CO2 capture. We have synthesized several MOFs with great stability, high performance and comparatively low cost, which make them potentially possible for commercial production and real-world applications.
