Position: PhD Students
Fields of Interest and Expertise
Research in electrochemistry: we study material for energy storage, anode and cathode for Sodium or Lithium-ion batteries. We use tape casting technique to prepare slurry-electrodes or electrospinning technique to synthesis self-standing electrodes.
