Kim Group - Advanced Energy Materials Chemistry

Overview

Climate changes, depletion of fossil fuels, and global warming have encouraged scientific society to consider utilising energy from sustainable resources, including wind power and solar energy. Despite the fact that sustainable energy sources are highly abundant, the supply of sustainable resources fluctuates all the time. Recent advances in lithium-ion battery technology have enabled a power source ranging from portable electronic devices to electric vehicles. In the future, developing energy storage applications for renewable resources will become increasingly important.

I am opening a new research group which focuses on developing next-generation energy storage system. Our research project will combine synthetic chemistry, electrochemistry, and materials science principles to develop advanced energy storage devices, in particular, rechargeable batteries. We are expecting to conduct interdisciplinary research and establish collaborations with other research groups. 


Opportunities
