We employ analytical and physical chemistry strategies to make renewable energy applications better
The future of renewable energy hinges on effective energy storage. Electrochemically induced redox materials especially lithium-ion batteries, based on reversible insertion chemistry, promise the efficient energy transformation between chemical and electrical energy. However, despite the importance of this technology, many fundamental aspects of insertion chemistry remain poorly understood. Motivated by understanding insertion chemistry at multi-level length scale facilitate the energy storage technology, our group is working on bridging the gap between the fundamentals of chemistry and energy storage. Our approach integrates the redox reaction at the levels of electrons, ions, single particles, and devices.
