Denis Kramers research interests focus on electrochemical energy conversion technologies such as fuel cells and batteries. He mainly works at the interface between theory and experiment, combining state-of-the-art computational materials design (based on DFT) with advanced electrochemical characterisation and synthesis techniques to discover technology-enabling materials for these devices. His current interests include the electrochemistry of oxide surfaces, the thermodynamics of binary nano-particles, and phase stability of multi-component systems in aqueous environments.
