I'm a PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering at Stanford University with support from Schlumberger Faculty for the Future Award (2018-2023), Stanford DARE (Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence) Fellowship Award (2020-2022), and 2022 Edward G. Weston Fellowship Award from the Electrochemical Society (ECS). Advised by Prof. Michael F. Toney and Dr. Johanna Nelson Weker at SLAC, my research uses advanced imaging diagnostic tools to understand the failure mechanisms of lithium-ion batteries during extreme fast charging (XFC). Specifically, I use high-resolution neutron and X-ray imaging to investigate Li plating characteristics on graphite anodes during XFC. For my research, I have won awards including the 2022 American Chemical Society CAS Future Leader; 2020 Stanford Distinguished Student Energy Lecturer; and 2020 and 2021 ECS and American Institute of Chemical Engineers Travel Grants. I hold an M.S. in chemical engineering from Stanford (2017) and a B.E. from the National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan (2013). Prior to Stanford, I worked on oil and gas rigs as a drilling engineer in amazon rainforests in Colombia. To date, I have published seven journal articles and hold two patents.
