Multiscale Modeling Effort in Electrochemistry

The primary focus of the Multiscale, Multiphysics Modeling of Electrochemical Systems Lab is establishing the underpinnings of computational tools that reconcile the gap between lower length scale, such as atomistic and microstructural level, and continuum level theory in the application of energy storage and conversion, and assist material design, device fabrication and system optimization of electrochemical techniques for efficient use of renewable energy and natural resources in an environmentally sound manner. Specifically, we are interested in developing advanced diagnostic tools for Lithium-Ion batteries, understanding fundamental degradation mechanisms of solid oxide fuel cells and electrolysis cells by both Defect Chemistry and Continuum Multiphysics Method.
