Karen Mulfort
Senior Investigator 

Karen Mulfort is a Chemist in the Solar Energy Conversion Group at Argonne National Laboratory. Her current research program focuses on the design and discovery of molecular architectures for artificial photosynthesis, and understanding the physical, chemical, and electronic factors that contribute to effective conversion of light energy to chemical energy. Her work is focused largely on utilizing earth-abundant elements and she is particularly interested in discovering the impact of outer coordination sphere and microenvironment on molecular photochemistry and photocatalysis. Karen was a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow at Argonne with David Tiede, after earning her Ph.D. in Materials Chemistry from Northwestern University in 2008.
