Jacob specialises in the synthesis of nanoporous carbon materials for supercapacitor and electrocatalytic applications.

​Jacob is interested in nanomaterials for supercapacitor and water splitting/fuel cell electrocatalysis applications. His research focuses on using synthetic methods to develop nanostructures for the improvement of mass diffusion and to increase the electrochemically accessible surface area within doped nanoporous carbon materials.
Jacob holds a Bachelor of Science (Hons I) degree with a major in Chemistry from the University of Queensland.
