The group's research is aimed at understanding the transport mechanisms of ions and molecules in functional materials with local nanoscopic constraints.

These include catalysts, electrochemical energy storage-, and solvated systems. The group utilizes different spectroscopic and microscopic techniques to characterize these systems. However, the unique capability of our group is the application of sophisticated 1D- and 2D NMR methods, including high field-gradient DOSY for direct assessment of molecular diffusion processes, and hyperpolarization to amplify NMR signals.
