Kent Griffith

Chemistry and Biochemistry

Assistant Professor

Research Focus
Inorganic solid-state chemistry, in-situ and operando techniques for study of energy materials

Research Summary

Prof. Griffith’s research combines inorganic solid-state chemistry, electrochemistry, and (in situ) advanced characterization techniques to understand reaction and degradation pathways in battery and other energy materials. We have a diverse range of synthetic approaches as well as expertise in solid-state NMR spectroscopy, X-ray/neutron diffraction and spectroscopy, DFT, and electrochemical characterization. The group has both fundamental and applied projects, the latter being in close collaboration with industrial partners and standards.
