My research has focused on the development of synchrotron radiation (SR) based techniques for studying the electronic structure of a variety of materials, e.g. a multitude of 3d-transition metal systems. Methodology includes resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) and x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), in particular applied to materials in their ambient environment, e.g. heterogeneous systems that include liquids such as in Li ion batteries. I have developed tools and platforms for in situ sample handling and in operando x-ray spectroscopy experiments at SR beamlines.

Currently, I am heavily involved with the investigation of Li ion battery materials using RIXS. See Nature Chemistry, 8(7): 684-691. Particularly, the role of oxygen in the cathode material is of high interest and RIXS can give unique insight. This work is being conducted in collaboration with research at ÅABC as well as the University of Oxford.

Other activities include research on cuprate superconductors, atmospheric corrosion, heterogeneous catalysis as well as fundamental studies on correlated 3d-TM systems as well as aqueous solutions.
