Peter Csernica

Originally a chemistry major at Cornell University, Peter Csernica now studies the materials chemistry of next-generation Li-ion battery electrodes with an emphasis on understanding the role of defects in the crystalline lattice. He employs both laboratory based synthesis and careful electrochemical characterization with synchrotron X-ray techniques to obtain a holistic understanding of material properties and performance. He additionally enjoys both watching and playing sports and is a fan of musical theater.
