Research Interest

Long-term goal of my research is to develop a deeper understanding of ionic materials, in particular of mixed ionic electronic conducting materials (MIECs). MIECs are key for sustainable energy conversion and storage solutions. My research interest includes solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), materials for lithium ion batteries (LIBs), memristive devices and solar-to-fuel conversion. Key to advance these applications is to understand anionic and cationic defect chemistry, surface and interface reactions or light-electronic-ionic interactions (opto-ionics) in the respective materials used.
