2022 - 2023 Committee Members
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.
Vipin Kumar Singh
Vipin is a PhD candidate doing research on improving the electrode and electrolyte architecture for solid state batteries under the supervision of Prof. Linda F. Nazar in the Department of chemistry. My research involves the synthesis of novel solid electrolytes and studying their modes of degradation and ageing, with alkali-based metals and high voltage cathode materials
Mohammad is a PhD student in his 2nd year in Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Professor Eric Croiset. He completed his bachelor’s and master’s program in mechanical engineering and has expertise in multigeneration energy systems with fuel cells as the prime mover. His doctoral work in general focuses on the fabrication of perovskite cells for solid oxide electrolysis. At the moment, he is working on the different material synthesis methods and cell fabrication techniques.
Elizabeth Esther Miller
Elizabeth is a MASc candidate in Dr. Michael Pope’s 2D Materials and Electrochemical Devices Group. Her work focuses on the applications of graphene and its derivative materials in vanadium redox flow batteries. She is applying novel coating techniques in order to achieve high quality monolayers of these materials to be used in her own research in addition to a collaboration between uWaterloo and the University of Calgary.
