Timothy Andrew Sipkens

Timothy's research is aimed at developing novel approaches to characterize soot morphology, focusing on the inversion techniques used to interpret tandem centrifugal partial mass analyzer (CPMA) and differential mobility analyzer (DMA) measurements. Simultaneous use of these devices allows one not only to distinguish between different populations of particles but also to determine how the properties of the particles are distributed in the aerosol as a whole.

I am working on a battery project that is partially funded by an industry partner. The end goal of the project is development of 55 Ah battery prototype, which would comprise of abundant and low cost materials such as manganese-dioxide, zinc, an inorganic salt and water. I am focused on a development of new cathode materials, improvement of battery chemistry as well as increasing of mass loading of active material in the electrode by employing different electrode designs and supporting materials
