The primary GOAL is to push the boundaries of ion storage chemistry in solids, often employing CARBON-based materials as model structures, for the purposes of sustainable energy storage.  We investigate local atomic and nanometric structure-property correlations to elucidate design principles for new energy materials by rational syntheses, advanced characterization and integration of computational studies.  Our battery interests include hydronium-ion batteries, potassium-ion batteries, dual-ion batteries, and sodium-ion batteries.  The electrode materials we invsetigate for these batteries include non-graphitic carbons, hydrocarbon molecular solids, and Prussian blue analogues. 

We also design new device configurations on the basis of electrochemistry and materials chemistry for advanced properties.
