Research Interests

Energy storage system, Computation materials

Research Projects

My research work is to develop a phase field model that accounts for the intimate coupling between electrochemical reaction and mechanical stress. The purpose is to investigate the electro-deposition/dissolution process in electrochemical systems, such as solid-state lithium batteries and corrosion in stressed metals.
