Research Interests

Xin Li's lab focuses on the design of next generation energy storage materials through advanced synthesis, test, characterization and simulation. By combining electrochemistry, microscopy, spectroscopy, first principle computations and artificial intelligence, the group aims to obtain the most performance-relevant understandings, which guides the design of new energy storage materials and devices, including next generation cathodes, anodes and solid electrolytes for lithium or sodium ion batteries. The group is also interested in obtaining a unified understanding about how microscopic interactions govern emergent phenomena in energy storage and strongly correlated quantum materials, with the current focus on unconventional superconductors.
