Research interests

  •  My major research interest is the capacity fading/phase transition study of the lithium-ion batteries.My current work is focused on the examination of the structural and chemical changes of the cathode during the electrochemical cycling. My research draws on experimental methods from in operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), in situ XRD, tomography, and RAMAN spectroscopy.The outcome from this research will shade some light on developing a novel cathode material for the lithium-ion batteries.
