Background and activities
Part of the research group: Functional Materials and Materials Chemistry Research Group (FACET)
I am a PhD candidate at the department of Materials Science and Engineering, and started working during the Autumn 2018. My work comprises the investigation of a two-dimensional material, known as MXenes, as a potential cathode material for rechargeable magnesium batteries. Currently, I am synthesizing the layered V2C MXene through the selective etching of Al-layers from the initial V2AlC MAX phase.
This project aims towards enabling a new battery technology, with possibly safer, better and less costly batteries than today's Li-ion batteries.
