Energy Storage Materials
I am interested in studying degradation of nickel-rich cathode materials using statistical mechanics and understanding fundamental physics of energy storage materials. I am also interested in better diagnostics and physics-based processing of diagnostics data.
Statistical Mechanics & Thermodynamics
I am interested in using statistical mechanics methods targeting disorder, defects, and population dynamics to study electrochemical materials, from many particle interactions in lithium-ion batteries to studying degradation using field theories of of disordered phases. I am also interested in driven open systems using nonequilibrium thermodynamics.
I am interested in using building accurate many-body potentials in a hierarchical fashion to understand the effects of higher-order interactions in aqueous systems.
