The research at our Lab is focused on finding solutions for some of the important problems in energy storage and water desalination. Our research spans from synthesis and characterization of advanced materials to fundamental understanding of the phenomena and processes at electrochemical interfaces. Currently, our research is focused on the on development of energy storage devices (batteries and supercapacitors) based on multivalent ions and multi-electron processes, understanding the electrode/electrolyte interfaces in batteries, development of advanced dielectric composites, design and fabrication of micro-scale energy storage devices, and development of materials and processes for water desalination.
