Cody Schlenker


Professor Schlenker’s program seeks to fundamentally understand how electronic dynamics at interfaces and within heterogeneous solids are controlled by molecular and mesoscale organization. By integrating synthetic chemistry and physical chemistry approaches—including contributions to mechanistic molecular photochemistry, solid-state photophysics, and interfacial electrochemistry—to explore fundamental principles and dynamics relevant to solar photocatalysis, the Schlenker group works to design new scalable materials and devices to meet global sustainable energy challenges.
