Our group conducts research in various areas of electrochemical systems and applied mathematics. Our research is guided by the following quotes from Einstein:

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler"

"The mere formulation of a problem is far more often essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science"

The group's current research focuses on the following areas:

  • Model reformulation for increased computational efficiency
  • Battery Management System (BMS) using physics based efficient reformulated models
  • Nonlinear Model Predictive Control Lab for lithium-ion batteries
  • Design of New Electrode Materials for lithium-ion batteries
  • Reliability and system level integration and control of solar cells with batteries
  • Electrochemical and Energy Systems Engineering
  • Mutliscale Simulation and Design of Energetic Materials
  • Understanding AC impedance data using detailed physics based models
  • Software development and hardware implementation of electrochemical models for electric vehicles and the electric grid
  • Electrochemical Characterization and Kinetic Studies of High Performance Redox Flow Batteries Based on Novel Non-Aqueous Electrolytes
  • " Where Solvers Fail "
