Research

My research focuses on polymer electrolytes for improved lithium-ion batteries. I'm currently using lithium bis(malanato) borates as polyanions in a liquid electrolyte. These systems have shown extraordinary electrochemical and thermal stability. By explointing copolymerization with PEO-like moieties the properties of the polyanions can be tuned.
