המחקר שלי עוסק בפיתוח הדור הבא של התקנים לאחסון אנרגיה, יצור אנרגיה והתפלת מים. עיקר העניין שלי הוא במערכות אלקטרוכימיות אשר עושות שימוש בזרימה דרך תווך נקבובי, כגון סוללות זרימה ומכשירי התפלה קיבולית. המחקר שלי משלב מחקר בסיסי של תופעות מעבר ואלקטרוכימיה באלקטרודות נקבוביות, יחד עם ייצור של אבי טיפוס, במטרה ליצור טכנולוגיות בעלות השפעה רחבה
