  • Current Courses

    Master’s & Ph.D. Advising

    Microscopic electrochemical characterizations, interfacial engineering for fast ion transport, electrochemical reaction in multi fields, etc.

  • Research Interests

    My research explores the relationship between structure and reactivity of energy storage/conversion materials, specifically on the ion transport properties of both ionic liquids and solids.  We use a variety of multiscale approaches to capture the dynamic features of the physico-chemo-mechanical processes at heterogeneous interfaces or microstructures of various electrochemical system.  My aim is to establish a comprehensive materials design rule to address both scientific and engineering challenges of the next-generation energy storage technologies.
