Wenhua Zhu (Nichols)
Dr. Zhu works in the fields of electrochemical systems and electrode materials, fuel cells and system diagnostics, battery energy storage, lithium ion battery failure analysis, non-traditional fuel and fuel cell durability, supercapacitors, catalysts and novel materials structures for advanced batteries, filtration systems, desulphurization processes, FTS syn-fuels, and/or high rate power sources. Research interests include various novel materials for catalystic reaction systems and structured reaction elements, such as microstructured fibrous materials. Design and large scale manufacturing issues for high conductivity, low cost, high surface area, stability electrode and catalyst materials. Composite metal-carbon filaments and fibers. Design, development, research, ac impedance and PSpice modeling of batteries, electrolysis, and fuel cells on electrode, membrane, membrane and electrode assembly including thermal, water, fuel, oxidant management of the energy-efficient power systems. Dr. Zhu has one co-authored book chapter. In addition, he has published over 24 peer-reviewed journal papers and more than 18 conference proceedings.
