I investigated the fabrication of carbon-based (porous carbon, carbon nanotubes, and graphene) and silicon carbide nanowire electrodes for supercapacitor applications. Additionally, I worked on all solid state supercapacitors for high temperature applications. I am also interested in microfabrication for harsh environment applications, chemical and electrochemical sensing, and microscale energy storage.
