Research Interests

I am researching use of graphene-related materials in lithium sulfur batteries, with the aim of improving their capacity retention and long-term stability. In addition to fabricating the materials and proof-of-concept batteries, I am working with the High Resolution Electron Microscopy and Nanomaterials and Spectroscopy groups to investigate in-situ characterisation methods to explore the lithium sulfur charge/ discharge mechanism.
