My research focusses on multiscale characterisation of functional electroceramics. This includes piezoceramics, ionic conductors, semiconducting ceramics, lithium ion battery materials and other energy storage materials. In my group, we cover the full range from synthesis and processing over characterisation to simulation and modelling. Special focus lies on in situ and in operando characterisation using photons, electrons and neutrons. A combination of electromechanical characterisation and investigations of the structure properties relationships allows studies over a broad range of length scales. This research is combined with simulations and modelling in order to correlate theory and experiment.
