The Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Lab (AMEL) focuses on cutting-edge research on additive- and nano- manufacturing for multifunctional devices, thermal science and advanced energy conversion and storage technologies, and sustainable energy and sensor systems. We integrate an “Atomic to System Engineering” approach to close the gap between basic research and real-world applications in order to constantly change the world and improve our living standard. Prof. Zhang’s lab has been sponsored by prestigious funding awards from U.S. Department of Energy, National Science Foundation and industry.


The AMEL at Notre Dame has immediate openings for Postdoc, Graduate Students and Undergraduate Students. Please email your application to Prof. Zhang.
