|Expertise:||I work with functional framework materials known as metal organic and covalent organic frameworks (MOFs and COFs). These materials possess porous channels which can be exploited for a variety of applications. My research looks at utilising these materials for lithium ion conductivity to increase the efficiency and safety of batteries by replacing the liquid electrolytes with a solid.|
I previously researched chiral metal organic frameworks for chiral separation applications.
