Personal profile

Research interests

My research consists of development and application of techniques for modelling functional materials. My current focus is the transport of ions through solids, with the goal of explaining the factors that control performance of lithium-ion battery materials.

Research interests

  • Lithium-ion solid electrodes and electrolytes.
  • Theory of complex ionic transport in solids.
  • The behaviour of crystal defects at surfaces and solid–solid interfaces "nanoionic" phenomena.
  • Phase stability and polymorphism in nanostructured materials.
