Main Research Activities

The electrode manufacturing depends on the fabrication parameters. Their optimization in industry and academia is currently based on trial error approaches. I work within the Artistic project, whose goal is to develop predictive computational tools for the fabrication process and the influence of the production parameters. I aim to support/validate the proposed models by experimental outputs using different characterization techniques.
