About

Mauro Pasta is an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials. His focus is on improving batteries, to power the transition to clean energy. By pursuing improvements to electrochemical energy storage, he is finding ways to make batteries that perform better and last longer.  

Professor Pasta leads a research group that is investigating batteries at each component, over wide length and time scales, and with methods ranging from first principle models to long term cell cycling. He also leads the SOLBAT solid-state batteries project at the Faraday Institution. The aim of SOLBAT is to develop an all-solid-state battery that would address the range and safety concerns of today's lithium batteries.
