Lingping Kong

Lingping received her Ph.D. in Chemical Technology from East China University of Science and Technology in 2016. Her thesis was entitled “Design and Synthesis of Nanostructure Nb2O5 and Studies of Intercalation Pseudocapacitive Behavior”. She joined Prof. Jeehwan Kim’s group at MIT as a Postdoctoral Associate in 2018 and extended her research direction to all solid-state thin film batteries. She specifically investigated all solid-state single crystalline batteries by remote epitaxy. She then joined Prof. Jennifer Rupp's group at MIT, where she aimed to more deeply understand the ionic transport properties at the cathode/electrolyte interface in solid-state thin film batteries. Her current research focuses on advanced carbon-based materials for extreme fast-charging batteries (co-hosted by Prof. Rupp and Prof. Brushett).
