Research summary

My research contributes to the discovery and development of new materials to make human energy production and usage more efficient, leading to decreases in costs, waste, and negative environmental impacts. Examples of such materials include stable, high-performance components of solid-state fuel cells intended to power hydrogen-fuelled cars of the future, and so-called "thermoelectric" devices to convert waste heat into electricity. Using various experimental methods combined with computer simulations to understand how these materials behave on the atomic scale, we will learn how to design new and improved materials to perform the same functions using cheaper, less toxic components.
