Research Overview


  • Dr. Zaiping Guo was awarded her PhD degree in Materials Science from the University of Wollongong in December 2003. She has made significant achievements in winning research grants from the ARC and commercial projects from industry. As the supervisor of 1 Postdoctoral Fellow, 8 PhD students, and 3 visiting Fellows, she is targeting their work on practical applications of various nanomaterials as electrode materials for lithium ion batteries and other energy storage or conversion technologies. she is particularly interested in ways to improve the performance and cycle life of these nanomaterials, identifying the specific physical and chemical properties that can be put to a particular practical use.

    Dr. Guo has been involved with Electrochemistry, nanotechnology and materials science since 1993 and has extensive knowledge and experience in material preparation, physical and structural characterisation and electrochemical testing and modelling. She has established a research program in nanomaterials for different applications, such as lithium ion batteries, supercapacitors, hydrogen storage and fuel cells. Substantial research work has been done under her supervision on the synthesis of nanomaterials, properties characterization and testing, and investigation of the reaction mechanism of nanomaterials electrodes. For example, by combining nano-composition preparation, surface modification and/or element substitution techniques, she has significantly improved the electrochemical capacity and cycling stability of a number of electrode materials for lithium ion batteries. Through more than 10 years of intensive research at the University of Wollongong, a set of technologies has been well established.
