Research Interests

My current research lies in additive manufacturing for energy applications with special focus on batteries. Examples include architecting lithium battery components to achieve high power densities, dry processing to reduce manufacturing cost, and high- volume manufacturing for solid state batteries to improve safety and energy density.
