Julia Fisher

Graduate Student Researcher

Office Location

Jointly advised by Bradley Chmelka (Chem E)

Specialization

Julia works with the light-activated protein, proteorhodopsin, which pumps protons upon activation. She focuses on incorporating active proteorhodopsin into a nanostructured silica host. Her goal is to harness the proton-pumping function of proteorhodopsin for solar to electrochemical energy conversion within a device.
