Welcome to the Laboratory of Integrated Modeling and Simulation (IMS)

    Our group is broadly interested in battery materials and chemistry. We tackle key battery-related problems through a combined experimental and theoretical approach, developing advanced batteries with improved safety, increased energy density, and reduced cost. The central theme of our research is to unravel the fundamental correlations between the chemistry-structure-performance of functional materials, bridging basic and applied sciences.

    Current research interests include (1) mechanistic studies of ion transport in superionic conductors; (2) materials, interfaces, and diagnostic tools for solid-state batteries; (3) multiscale models and physical field coupling in solid-state batteries; and (4) low-cost sodium and magnesium batteries.

    We welcome motivated graduate students and postdocs to contact us for potential opening positions!
