Research Interests

His current research is focused on electrochemical interfaces in energy storage systems. He aims to expand the fundamental understanding of charge transfer and accumulation on the liquid/solid interfaces in Li-ion and post Li-ion batteries, and their effect on the battery performance.

He is interested in using computational approaches, data-driven, machine learning techniques to enhance our knowledge on batteries.
