Research interest

His scientific focus is on the investigation of the relation between morphology, structure and conversion efficiency in electrocatalytical energy applications such as fuel cells, or electrolysers. The most important methods are tomographic imaging, microstructure modeling and reactant transport simulation as well as novel manufacturing processes and electrochemical characterisation.
