Barnaby Levin


Barnaby’s main research interests are in the use of transmission electron microscopy to characterize materials that can contribute to sustainable energy use. TEM characterization provides vital information for the design of new, more cost effective energy materials.



Barnaby received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 2017. Under the supervision of Prof. David Muller, Barnaby used transmission electron microscopy to characterize a broad range of materials, including lithium-sulfur battery electrodes (with sulfur sublimation suppressed by using cryo-TEM), platnium fuel cell catalysts, biochar, and paint from historic art masterpieces.
Barnaby received his undergraduate degree in Physics from the University of Oxford in 2011. During the course of his studies, Barnaby worked under the supervision of Prof. Henry Snaith to fabricate and test solid state dye-sensitized solar cells.

Barnaby is a member of the Microanalysis Society, and the Materials Research Society.
