Main Research Activities

The current research activity focuses on studying transport properties in separators with applications in lithium-sulfur batteries. The main objective is to shed light on the different physics and microstructural properties that affect the diffusion of polysulphide species across such separators from a theoretical point of view. For this, transport equations are solved in the continuum by explicitly considering complex 3D structures for the separators.
