How could batteries fuel the next revolution in communication and transportation systems? By exploring new materials and chemistry, my research is focused on a new type of high energy density lithium-sulphur batteries. To make them practical, a chemically functional layer with a villi-like nano-architecture has been proposed to trap and reuse the dissolved active materials during battery charging and discharging. By taking inspiration from the natural world, I am coming up with new solutions that I hope will accelerate the development of next-generation batteries. My first publication is in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
