Guo, Zaiping Professor

Distinguished Professor, Australian Research Council (ARC), Future Fellow (FT3)

  • Australian Institute for Innovative Materials
  • Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials
  • Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences
  • School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering

Research Overview


  • Professor Guo and her students study the fundamental properties of electrode materials for energy storage. They develop facile and low-cost processing methods and address critical issues in rechargeable batteries and other energy storage devices. She is particularly focused on developing the next generation of high performance batteries that will power electric cars and a green energy grid for a more sustainable future.

    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 15 years of intensive
    research at the University of Wollongong, a set of technologies has been well
    established.
