Runzi Wang DPhil

DPhil Student


Runzi Wang is a dedicated doctoral researcher currently engaged as a Visiting PhD student at the University of Oxford's Department of Engineering Science. His academic journey began with a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering Design from the University of Manchester (2018-2019). Subsequently, he embarked on his PhD at Imperial College London in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, under the supervision of Dr. Emilio Martinez-Paneda (2020-2024).

Runzi's research is centered on the development of All-Solid-State Battery (ASSLB) Finite Element Method (FEM) modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics. His project aims to address the commercial application challenges of ASSLBs, focusing on the initiation and growth of lithium dendrites and void formation at the electrode/electrolyte interface.


Research Interests

  • Finite element modelling of All-Solid-State batteries

  • Phase field modelling

  • Electro-Chemo-Mechanical Analysis

Current Projects

Phase Field Based Electro-Chemo-Mechanical Modelling of Void Evolution at the interface of ASSLBs:

Focusing on the development of a multi-couple phase-field model to predict and analyze the formation of voids in ASSLB interfaces, crucial for understanding and improving the performance and safety of ASSLBs.
