Alexander Urban is a chemist currently leading a research group at St. Andrews University in Scotland. Previously a Postdoctoral Associate at UC Berkeley, Urban worked with the Ceder Research group to publish a groundbreaking study about the potential of disordered cathodes in Lithium-Ion batteries.
Battery enthusiasts as we are here at Seeker, we had Alex steer us through the frontier of battery research. From the main issues facing developers today, to the potentials of tomorrow, we dived into all your burning battery questions.
