Luke Robinson develops computational models that aim to understand microstructural features and predict performance in electrochemical systems. During his time at Purdue, he has developed a rapidly deployable, multiscale tool that allows for the design/tailoring of electrode microstructure and particle morphology in rechargeable batteries. He currently develops phase field models for studying heterointerfacial properties in ionic solids, and the growth of intermetallics in multicomponent systems.

Luke joined Prof. García’s group in Fall 2014 as an undergraduate. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Materials Engineering at Purdue in Spring 2017, and is pursuing his PhD in Materials Engineering. He is originally from Westminster, Colorado, and enjoys outdoor activities (hiking and camping in particular), powerlifting, and traveling.
