Research summary

My research focuses on the self assembly of spherical micelles formed by doubheaded surfactants into ordered phases. The phase behaviour is studied by small angle x-ray scattering. I also work on Li-ion conducting surfactants in common battery solvents so as to develop safer Li-ion battery electrolytes,
