High energy and high-powder electrode materials for secondary battery systems including Li-ion batteries, Na-ion batteries and Al-ion batteries

I have been focusing on the electrode materials research for energy storage devices and has accumulated extensive experience and skills in electrode material fabrication, characterisation and performance evaluation. Now I am co-supervising a PhD student and working in a state-of-the-art energy materials lab of the Nanomaterials Centre.

Dr. Delai Ye is currently a postdoc research fellow in the Australia Institute of Biotechnology and Nanotechnology. He received his B.S. degree from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Central South University in 2008 and Ph.D. from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Queensland in 2014. His current research interest focuses on highenergy and high-powder electrode materials for secondary battery systems.
