Specific project concerns optimization of electric vehicles battery configuration, electric vehicles || Grid interaction, critical points, and cost/benefit analysis.
Undergraduate researcher: Design a spray-based battery laminate coater
We seek a motivated undergraduate with skills in mechanical design and Labview programming to design a spray coating system for battery electrode fabrication. A minimum of junior level is ideal however skilled sophomores will be considered. The project can be undertaken for elective credits (preferred).
Ph.D. candidate: Lithium-sulfur
A motivated Ph.D. student for the design and fundamental study of Lithium-sulfur batteries. Focus of project is on electrolyte formulation to mitigate polysulfide shuttling. Project will be coupled with electrode design and operando probing of electrochemical reactions using spectroscopy and X-ray tools.
