Research Collaborators: The Haan Research Lab places a high value on research collaboration. Such collaboration: 1) gives us access to ideas and instrumentation we otherwise would not, 2) sparks high-level scientific discussions with experts in the fields of energy, chemistry, and engineering, and 3) affords an opportunity for our students to interact with Ph.D. candidate graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, scientists, and professors. We have peer-reviewed publications and/or active collaboration with the following:
- Dr. Su Ha, Washington State University (Chemical Engineering)
- Dr. Louis Scudiero, Washington State University (Chemistry)
- Dr. Frank Gomez, CSU Los Angeles (Chemistry), LinkedIn
- Dr. Salvador Mayoral, CSUF (Mechanical Engineering)
- Dr. Allyson Fry-Petit, CSUF (Chemistry), LinkedIn
- Dr. Michael Groves, CSUF (Chemistry), LinkedIn
- Dr. Shahab Derakhshan, CSU Long Beach (Chemistry), LinkedIn
Students: The Haan Research Lab currently has over 20 graduate and undergraduate students working on 4 active project teams.
