Teaching activities

Interests

My current research focuses on flow batteries for grid scale electricity storage to increase the distribution of intermittent renewable energy such as wind and solar. I also look for ways of electrochemically converting CO2 to value added products and creating better electrochemical sensors for chemical analysis.
