Welcome to our new IMI!

As an NSF-funded International Materials Institute, our role is to foster and coordinate international collaborative research in the critical areas of energy and the environment.

Our research and education programs focus on four thematic areas with a cross-cutting emphasis on nanostructured materials:

  • Solar to Electric Energy Conversion
  • Solar to Fuel Energy Conversion
  • Nanotoxicology / Control of air pollutants, combustion, aerosol processes
  • Reduction and sequestration of CO2

Our education programs emphasize global leadership development for graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty and the development of resources to be shared by our partners.

Since our launch in Fall 2009, our efforts have focused on two areas: expanding our multi-sector partnerships and building this community-based website. Our IMI currently includes members from 14 institutions in the US and 12  institutions in China.

This website is a forum and resource for the IMI-SEE community. All IMI members will be given authorship rights on this site, and we are counting on you to enrich it with your research highlights, event listings, and news! The site will soon also include community workspaces where IMI members can collaborate.

I look forward to working with you in this exciting phase of our development!


R.P.H.Chang, IMI-SEE Director
