The Modi lab focuses on microgrid and distributed system design, analysis, and implementation to alleviate energy poverty.
The Steingart group focuses on the fundamental analysis of systematic behavior and critical analysis of performance requirements in batteries.
The West group focuses on analysis, characterization and design of electrochemical materials, architectures and systems for storage and conversion applications. Transport, phase-change, and reaction mechanisms are investigated through experiment and numerical simulations. Through close coupling with experiment, predictive, physics-based models, augmented by data-science algorithms, are developed and used as a tool for the creation of technologies satisfying applications ranging from automotive to grid-scale storage.
