Atomic Structure-Composition of Materials
Charles is an electrochemist and a materials scientist with extensive experience related to lithium-ion batteries and advanced transmission electron microscopy. His work is focused on the application of advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques toward materials problems in electrochemical systems with an emphasis on lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells.
Charles graduated from The University of West Florida with a B.S. in both Physics and Mathematics in 2009. He then graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2017 under the advisement of Dr. John B. Goodenough and Dr. Paulo J. Ferreira with a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering with the dissertation entitled “Effect of Chemical Treatment and Trivalent Doping on the Surface Structure and Surface Chemistry of Li1-xNi0.5-yMn1.5+yO4.” During his graduate studies, he was supported by a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (NSTRF) entitled “Surface Passivation of Lithium-Ion Electrodes: A Path to High-Performance Energy Storage.” He also received the Doctoral Portfolio Program Certification in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology upon graduation, which recognizes students who obtain the broad educational background necessary to become leaders in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
