Paul Abel is pursuing a career in industrial research and development in Austin, Texas. His work focuses on developing new processes and applications for inkjet printing of functional materials. Paul's thesis focused on understanding the limitations and failure mechanisms of lithium-alloying anode materials and developing new chemical strategies to overcome these limitations. His interests include looking at how material structure and chemical composition affect electrochemical properties.

Thesis:

2014 - Chemical Modification of Nanocolumnar Semiconductor Electrodes for Enhanced Performance as Lithium and Sodium-Ion Battery Anode Materials
