Research Interests

Topics: My main research interest is in batteries and other energy storage technologies, and how to develop the next stage of these products. I’ve always been intrigued by these kinds of technologies and how to make them more sustainable, especially in combination with 2D materials. I’m excited about the opportunity to combine these interests in batteries and sustainability to do some meaningful work as part of this program.

Why 2D materials: I’m really interested in batteries and other energy storage technologies and there is a huge opportunity to use 2D materials as the next step in the development of these technologies. 2D materials are definitely a rapidly developing area for research and there are so many opportunities post-grad to transition to working in industry R&D. The more I learn about 2D materials, the more excited I am about doing my research in this field.
