Williams Agyei Appiah

Associate Professor

Battery Modelling and Simulation

Williams Agyei Appiah has experience in battery modeling and simulation research from DGIST, South Korea (PhD) and Technical University of Denmark (Postdoc). His research activities focus on merging fundamental science and engineering applications of electrochemical devices such as lithium ion and next-generation batteries with work including continuum physics-based modeling, understanding (dis) charging mechanisms, elucidating degradation mechanisms, innovative electrode/cell design optimization, data mining tools and fast predictive models for inverse design.

At the University of Agder, he combines his research and teaching experience to educate and inspire the next generation in battery technology, conducts battery research and design modeling tools to accelerate battery development at the Battery Coast.
