My research concerns high-throughput screening and design of new inorganic materials for energy applications. I am interested in using machine learning and other low-cost screening techniques to explore vast areas of the chemical landscape. Right now I am applying these tools to exciting new classes of battery materials.

I carried out my PhD within the Walsh Materials Design Group and explored how a combination of empirical rules, and data-mining can be used to supplement accurate electronic structure methods to predict new light-harvesting materials.
