Assistant Professor Yverick Rangom is working toward safe fast-charging of current and future battery technologies by fundamentally transforming the chemical, electrical and mechanical properties of interfaces from the microscopic level to the nano level.

With the planned transition to battery-powered vehicles in the next decades, Dr. Rangom believes that the success of future battery research will reside in drastically improving very practical aspects of reliability and performance under abusive operating conditions on top of improving their electrochemical performance and lowering their cost. To that effect, a multi-disciplinary approach is necessary in particular the electrical and mechanical performances of nano interfaces between hetero-materials.

Dr. Rangom completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2020 at the University of Queensland in Australia. His PhD focussed on the effectiveness of improved transport of electronic and ionic charges on the fast-charging abilities of lithium- and sodium-ion batteries. Dr. Rangom was a post-doctoral fellow from 2021 to 2022 at the University of Waterloo and a former recipient of a WIN fellowship during his time as a graduate student at the University of Waterloo. Dr. Rangom is an Assistant Professor in the Chemical Engineering department of the University of Waterloo.
