Mariam Gad

Mariam Gad


  • LinkedIn - Black Circle

Mariam is a PhD candidate in Dr. Michael Pope's 2D Materials and Electrochemical Devices Group. Her research focuses on developing a new generation of lithium-ion batteries using a silicon-based anode coupled with a solid electrolyte and a commercially available cathode. She aims at developing a scalable procedure with abundant and non-toxic materials.
