- Nanostructured electrode materials for energy storage;
- Peptide-based materials for drug delivery;
- Nano- and bio-materials for structural protection and thermal management;
- Graphite materials in nuclear reactors; and
- Materials for hydrogen generation.
The multi-scale investigation aims to: 1) Improve fundamental understanding of material physics and electrochemistry, particularly at material interfaces; and 2) Rationalize materials design for exceptional properties.
