Er Research Group is specialized on the application of fundamental physical laws and modern data science tools to model, and more ambitiously, to discover new materials for energy conversion and storage. We are located at Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER), Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

RESEARCH FIELDS:
  • Computational prediction of materials properties via electronic structure calculations and data science
  • Energy storage materials (redox flow batteries and hydrogen)
  • Energy conversion materials (electrochemical conversion and catalysis)
