Research Interest

The Hu research group focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of functional materials for energy storage and conversion. One example is to develop fast ion conductors (solid electrolytes) for the next-generation rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. This effort is facilitated by another important focus of our research program, advancing magnetic resonance techniques including NMR and MRI to probe materials synthesis, property, and function in real time and/or under operational conditions.
