Research Interests

Na ion batteries, amorphous carbon, computer simulation

My current project focuses on the simulation of Na intercalation in hard carbon by Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP). Sodium ion batteries (NIB) are seen as the potential substitution of lithium ion batteries (LIB). Efforts have been made on searching for better anode materials for NIB and my work is related to it.
