Summary

 

Summary

I am interested in understanding how physical and chemical processes impact the behaviour of energy storage devices in applications. This involves identifying the mechanisms that limit behaviour under real conditions, which I do by building electrochemical and physical models. I use experimentally observed behaviour to parametrise and validate these models, and use them further to explore ways in which their performance can be improved. I also synthesise this knowledge into reduced order models, which can be used for control algorithms in a given application.

I am working on lithium ion batteries, lithium sulfur batteries, supercapacitors and Li-ion capacitors.
