Nathan Phillip

Energy Conversion and Storage


Supervising Faculty: Claus Daniel

Nathan Phillip works with the Battery Manufacturing Facility group at the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility of Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The team is improving lithium-ion battery technology while reducing the cost through aqueous processing, post-mortem cell analysis, and next-generation high energy silicon anode designs. His current work focuses on cathode-electrolyte interactions as well as studies of renewable materials for battery applications. His prior work at the ORNL Center for Nanophase Materials Science on the Helium Ion Microscope allowed him to develop skills in modeling, microscopy, and data extraction.


When he is not working in the lab, Nathan may be found clambering up mountains, backpacking, or rock climbing.
