Professor, NENG Director, Sustainable Power and Energy Center Zable Endowed Chair in Energy Technologies
Energy storage and conversion materials: nano structured electrodes for advanced rechargeable batteries, dye-sensitized solar cells and thermoelectric conversion; charge ordering, structure stability, processing/structure/property - performance relation in functional ceramics.
Intersecting the disciplines of materials science and information science, Dr. Ong’s research will develop new materials informatics approaches to create and analyze rich materials data and apply them to the design of new energy materials.
A leader in a wide range of research areas including nanomachines, nanobioelectronics, and sensing technologies for applications including clinical diagnostics, environmental and security monitoring and remote sensing.
A theme of my research is to study structural, electronic, optical and magnetic properties of materials, aiming to understand, predict, optimize materials properties and design novel functional materials.
