Research Summary

My research is to leverage advanced electron microscopy techniques to unravel the fundamental mechanisms to enhance the degradation resistance in materials that are critical for sustainable energy systems. The methods that are used involve in-situ TEM, liquid/gas cell, 4D-STEM, and 3D tomography.
