Main Research Activities

The aim of ARTISTIC project, lead by Prof A. A. Franco, is to develop a novel theoretical framework devoted to rationalizing the formulation of composite electrodes for lithium ion batteries. My tasks in this project is to implement Lattice Boltzmann models to simulate and optimize the electrolyte impregnation in porous electrodes, combined with machine leaning algorithms to optimize the force fields being used in Coarse Grained Molecular Dynamics simulations of the electrode fabrication processes.
