Research Interests: 

Solid State batteries are considered to be a key solution for next generation energy storage technologies. Current research interests include the development of novel scalable all-solid-state batteries, nano-energy materials, and 3D and 1D nanofiber-based solid-state electrolytes, polymer/bio-polymer electrolytes, thin film, interface engineering, and advanced affordable cathode and anode materials. The primary goal is to construct highly flexible organic-inorganic thin composite solid electrolytes using electrospinning techniques. To design thermally safe, high energy & power density, and long cycling stability rechargeable batteries, especially for power batteries in EVs to alleviate the greenhouse effect and improve the environmental quality.
