R&D fields associated with battery and supercapacitor materials. Robert Black is a research officer with NRC-Mississauga and is leading the new research efforts in the areas of self-driving laboratories and accelerated material discovery. Robert’s research interests are involved with bringing traditional laboratory-based electrochemical techniques into automated laboratories, as well as the application of experimentally-driven machine learning algorithms to the material discovery process. It is through close collaborative ties between NRC-M and UofT that Robert is contributing to the efforts of A3MD.
