Background and activities

I am interested in the study and development of solid state electrolytes to enable next generation battery technologies. Specifically, I work with understanding how such materials conduct Li ions and how to increase the ionic conductivity.

I use molecular dynamics simulations to study Li-ion transport in solid polymer electrolytes.

In addition, I do wet synthesis and characterisation of potential solid-state oxide-based electrolytes.
