Here in LMAPS, we conduct a highly multidisciplinary research with an overarching goal of mapping the chemical, electrochemical, and mechanical properties of materials to their hierarchical structure. Our projects target a broad range of applications primarily focusing on energy storage.
Lithium Sulfur Batteries with High Performance and Durability
In this project we aim to engineer the sulfur cathode microstructure through convenient and low-cost electrode processing methods and precursors.
Flexible, Wearbale, and Weavable Li-S batteries
In this project, we study novel structural hosts in flexible sulfur cathodes and Li anodes for wearbale and weavable Li-S batteries.

Hierarchical Structure-to-Property Relationships in Sulfur Cathodes
With a novel approach rooted in the materials science, we aim to ultimately resolve the challenges in Li-S batteries by reaching a more clear understanding of the effect of sulfur electrode atomic-scale structure on its properties.

Materials Engineering for the Next Generation of Separators in Secondary Lithium Metal-based Batteries
In this project, we investigate and enhance the chemical, electrochemical and mechanical stability of new separator materials, as an alternative for the PPP separators, for Lithium metal-based batteries.
Silicon Anode Processing for Next Generation of High Performance Batteries
In this project, we investigate cost-effective methods to process high surface area Silicon and Silicon composites as anode electrode for high performance batteries.
