Physical chemistry
Research activity: 
In this project my aim is to investigate, using first principles calculations and experimental techniques, disordered multicomponent Li-rich layered oxide materials (the so-called over-stoichiometric Li-rich nickel manganese cobalt oxides: Li1+xTM1-xO2 (being TM a blend of metal ions)). These materials are innovative positive electrodes for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). The project goal is to study the structural stability, phase segregation, defect formation, ion migration and electrochemical properties in batteries, in order to draw a comprehensive physico-chemical analysis of this class of materials.
In the staff of the following lines of research:
