Personal profile


My research interests are mathematical modelling for lithium-ion batteries, computational methods for lithium-ion batteries, numerical methods for Hamilton-Jacobi equations, nondestructive testing of metals and traffic flow models. Currently I am working on the development of novel mathematical models of lithium-ion cells and fast solvers for physics-based models.

I am one of the developers of DandeLiion

DandeLiion is developed in collaboration with the University of Portsmouth, University of Southampton, and Imperial College London and funded by Faraday Institution under the Multiscale Modelling project. 

DandeLiion is an ultra-fast solver for electrochemical models of planar lithium-ion cells and thermal-electrochemical models of three-dimensional composite pouch cells. It solves models of the form first described by Doyle, Fuller, and Newman in the mid-90s, and which are now commonly known either as Newman models or as porous electrode theory.
