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
