The overarching goal of our research is to understand the underlying microscopic mechanisms determining the key structure-property relationships in different classes of soft materials and how we can tune the different material properties for new and current technologies, especially in electrochemical energy applications. Our current research focuses on three main areas, namely, (i) Ionic Liquids and Deep Eutectic Solvents, (ii) Advanced Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy and its Applications, and (iii) Polymer Dynamics.
