In the past I’ve worked on surface initiated polymerizations and battery electrolytes (grad school, UC Berkeley), new absorber/hole transport materials for organic photovoltaics (first postdoc, National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and plastic scintillators (second postdoc, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory).  I previously worked at energy storage startup eSionic working on battery and supercapacitor electrolytes.
