Barile Group

Welcome to the Barile group website! Dr. Christopher Barile will join the faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno as an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry in summer 2017! The Barile group will work at the intersection of electrochemistry, inorganic chemistry, and materials chemistry with an emphasis on solving problems associated with energy conversion, storage, and efficiency. Students will get the opportunity to work on projects ranging from fundamental ones like understanding electrocatalysis to applied ones like building color-changing smart windows and next-generation batteries. Undergraduate and graduate students interested in working with Chris should contact him at
