Welcome to the Nanofibers for Energy Storage and Conversion Laboratory at Drexel University. We combine experiments and simulations to study structure-property performance correlation in nanofiber-based novel materials for energy storage and conversion devices including fuel cells, super-capacitors, batteries and solar cells.

Current research areas include: Hierarchically Ordered Materials for Batteries/Fuel cells/Supercapacitors, Electrospinning of Nanofibers using Self Assembling Materials, and Molecular Dynamics Simulations to understand the Effect of Deformation and Confinement on Material assembly.
