We study electrochemical systems at the nanoscale. We invent new techniques for measuring nanoscale electrochemical processes, use simulations to understand the electrochemical response of nanoscale systems, and characterize nano-structured electrochemically active materials..
Electrochemical Scanning Probe Microscopy
We develop new techniques which aim to improve the resolution and functionality of electrochemical scanning probe microscopy (EC-SPM), such as Scanning Electrochemical Cell Microscopy (SECCM), Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy (SICM), and Intermittent-Contact Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (IC-SECM).
We study how the structure of a 2D material (such as number of layers, edges vs basal plane, support material, defects) influences electrochemical reactions on the surface.
CO2 to Sustainable Aviation Fuels
We study how we can turn waste CO2 into valuable liquid fuels. This includes the development of a validated digital twin for a CO2 electrolysis cell.
Simulation and Scientific Programming
Using mathematical simulation and computational modelling to understand the transport of chemical species on the nanoscale, and quantify the electrochemical response of electrochemical sensors.
