Yiming Guo


Yiming (Bill) earned his undergraduate degrees in Chemistry from the University of Calgary in 2021, where he received the Dean’s Prize in recognition of his academic achievements. During his undergraduate years, He delved deep into researching Localized High Concentrations of Electrolyte and Anode-Free Lithium Batteries for a substantial period of 1.5 years. Following his undergraduate studies, Yiming (Bill) pursued an MSc in Chemical Processing Engineering at UCL. He has investigated cathodes in Lithium-sulfur batteries. Upon completing his MSc, Yiming (Bill) Guo seamlessly transitioned to the next phase of his academic journey. He embarked on a Ph.D. program at UCL.

Research Summary

Currently, his research is concentrated on the cathode materials of Lithium-sulfur batteries. His primary objective is to reduce the activation energy associated with phase transitions while concurrently devising innovative strategies to minimize dendrite formation and polysulfide shuttling within the battery cells. To achieve these goals, a variety of analytical techniques, including Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), will be employed. These methodologies will be instrumental in advancing the commercial processes involved in Lithium-sulfur battery production.
