Academic expertise and interests

  • Lead-free piezoelectric ceramics;
  • Fabrication of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells with various electrode-supported configurations;
  • Modeling and interpreting the electrochemical performance of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells;
  • Redox-stable electrode materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells;
  • Solid state electrochemistry and defect chemistry of mixed conducting oxides;
  • High temperature protonic conducting ceramics

I am currently working on the FOXCET project, Functional oxides for clean energy technologies: fuel cells, gas separation membranes and electrolysers. The project is funded by Research Council of Norway under the NANO2021 programme.

My task within the FOXCET project is to extend space charge theory of interfaces to heterophase boundaries and surfaces, especially for the proton conductor / metal electrode interface.
