Joe DuChene joined the Atwater group as a postdoctoral scholar in 2016. Joe obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Florida with Professor David Wei, where his dissertation involved the development of plasmonic photoelectrochemical cells for solar-to-fuel energy conversion. At Caltech, his research interests involve the use of plasmonic photocatalysts for enhancing the selectivity of solar-driven CO2 reduction and the exploration of two-dimensional semiconductor materials for the production of solar fuels.
