Logan Wilder studies the electrode/electrolyte interface and the electrocatalytic generation of useful chemicals like hydrogen and ammonia. Logan is interested in controlling the molecular structure of the electrode-electrolyte interface to improve the efficiency of electrosynthesis methods, such as by introducing strain, defect sites or heteroatoms into catalysts. Logan is working with transition metal dichalcogenide catalysts, a class of 2D materials which show excellent stability and are promising for use in the nitrogen reduction and hydrogen evolution reactions. Logan came to NREL in 2022 as a postdoctoral researcher. Logan performed his doctoral studies at the University of Texas at Austin under the advisership of Richard Crooks. His doctoral studies focused on controlling the structure of ligands at the nanoparticle-solvent interface and also on developing basic electrochemical techniques for droplet microfluidics.
