As an electrochemist, I'm always interested in fluid-solid interfaces and reactions. Electrochemistry is by nature nanoscaled, and as such resolved chemical information at surfaces is difficult to separate from bulk solution. Therefore, my research has centered on developing and applying new techniques to probe reactions and structures that occur/form at interfaces in real time. That is, I seek to provide direct imaging of interfaces at the nanoscale while they are undergoing change. I am currently using in situ neutron scattering (SNS) and electron microscopy techniques to probe interfaces important to supercapacitors and batteries.
