Asymptotic reduction of a porous electrode model for lithium-ion
SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics
My focus is on interdisplinary problems involving continuum mechanics, heat and mass transport, and interfacial phenomena. I am particularly interested in:
- soft matter, hydrogels, and polymer networks
- instability-driven patterning, structure formation in complex media
- phase separation and phase change
- lithium-ion battery modelling
- nanoscale heat transfer
