Research summary

Since September 2013 Dr. Carrasco is Associate Researcher at CIC Energigune. His research aims at understanding important phenomena in surface-, materials- and nano-science in the power storage field. Using concepts from quantum mechanics, solid state physics, and statistical mechanics, he applies and develops methods and computer simulations to study processes of relevance to energy materials - such as the properties of ion insertion and extraction in electrodes and chemical reactions at surfaces. Rechargeable batteries and fuel cells are major focuses of his work.
