The Canepa Research Lab works on the design of materials from first-principles methodologies. We are part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the National University of Singapore.

We are also affiliated with the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Singapore MIT alliance SMART.

We apply computational methods to advance the understanding of materials properties for energy storage and conversion. Our research leverages the synergy between materials science, thermodynamics, electrochemistry and the power of supercomputers for the discovery of novel materials and molecules. The models derived from our research contribute to the rational design of new materials for clean energy technologies, such as electrode materials for batteries, ionic conductors and liquid electrolytes for energy-dense and sustainable energy storage systems.
