Research Overview


  • I received a PhD in Materials Engineering from the Institute for Superconducting & Electronic Materials (ISEM) at the University of Wollongong (UOW). My PhD research was focused on hydrogen storage materials. It was recognized by a Faculty Postgraduate Thesis Award as the best postgraduate thesis from the Faculty of Engineering of UOW in 2011. After working at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung and the University of Glasgow, I have been developing my career in the field of electrochemical energy storage since 2014, starting with when I was a research associate at the University of Maryland.

    My research interests are in developing functional materials and electrolytes for next generation high-energy and large-scale batteries, and understanding their fundamentals of electrochemical processes in electrodes and at electrode/electrolyte interfaces. I also focus on tailoring the thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen storage materials for efficient hydrogen storage and transport.
