I am interested in improving the energy storage of batteries for electric vehicles and renewable energy sources. This comes from an interest in materials science and electrochemistry. Using the knowledge I learn in my time of academics I hope to work industry for electric vehicles or battery improvement. My skills are heavily revolved around being a team player so also interested in bridging the gap between the interests of academia and industry.
My primary interests are law, policy and the environment; my project above ties together all three of these interests. Taking this forward, I anticipate a career in academia, legal practice or policy/legislative creation.
I’m interested in applying computational methods to help facilitate a move to a more environmentally friendly society. My current research focuses on solid state electrolytes for use in all solid-state batteries. After completing my PhD project, I aim to utilise my skills to achieve the greatest positive impact possible on society and the wider world. Whilst I am open to new opportunities, my current thoughts are to explore a career in policy or environmental modelling.
I studied at UCL where I got a BEng in Chemical Engineering and graduated with an MSc in Materials for Energy and Environment. During this time, I also spent six months in the materials group at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. I now focus on the imaging and characterisation (mainly XRD and XAS techniques) of material degradation, where I intend to develop my skills using these X-ray characterisation techniques. I am still undecided regarding my future after my PhD, but I am currently considering a career in industry or a public institution/research lab in the UK or Europe.
I am a power electronics engineer specialising in battery applications. Before officially becoming an engineer, I was an electronics hobbyist, and one of my earliest projects was designing a wireless phone charger. I have also worked a number of my early years as a head technician, installing and maintaining PA systems for audiences up to 1000. My passion for electronics lead me to electrical engineering, where I really cultivated my knowledge and embarked on very exciting projects such as building an electric bike from scratch. My research interests are largely towards designing efficient power electronics systems for battery applications, in both hardware and software. I am currently working on a novel energy management controller and developing efficient high-performance hardware enabling high C-rate discharge of batteries. I hope to be well established and a successful leader in the battery industry.
I am currently finishing up my PhD in Materials Science at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Peter Bruce. My research has been directed towards the development of high-voltage cathode materials for the next generation of Li-ion and Na-ion batteries by studying Oxygen Redox cathode materials. My thesis is titled “Towards Reversible High-Voltage Oxygen Redox in Secondary Alkali Ion Batteries”. During my PhD I have also carried out an internship with Rho Motion, who provide well-informed forecasts and analysis for the energy transition. My work there focused on understanding the scope for electrification in the Mining Industry.
I have recently started a role working at the Faraday Institution as an Energy Storage Analyst, where I hope to contribute to the development of energy storage technologies which can help mitigate the effects of climate change.
University of Nottingham early career researcher working as part of the Faraday Institution degradation project. My first research project was to develop a fundamental understanding of the solvent properties that are responsible for water toleration in the lithium-air battery. The knowledge and techniques developed in this project will now be employed to study gas evolution in the lithium-ion battery, with particular emphasis on electrochemical detection. I am passionate about renewable energy and developing sustainable solutions, with a drive to make a tangible real-world impact throughout my career. My career interests lie in the fundamental development of battery technology, from state-of-the-art lithium-ion to emerging lithium-based battery chemistries and exploring solutions beyond lithium-ion.
The adoption of electric vehicles and renewables will likely be limited by inadequate supply of input commodities for lithium-ion batteries. Investment in raw material extraction and delocalised supply chains are essential if OEMs are to have a secure supply of cells in the future. I plan to pursue a career that will focus on addressing these areas, both within the UK and globally. I believe this is where I can make the most impact combatting climate change. If the UK’s success in the automotive industry is to be maintained, we rely on a coordinated effort from government and industry. As such, I am pursuing opportunities in the public and private sectors to work on science-policy issues and within the battery supply chain.
My research interests include morphological, mechanical and thermal characterisation of LIBs. I am also interested in design for recycle, using water-soluble binders in anodes to minimise degradation and improve recyclability.
I am interested in energy storage research, including LIB research but also beyond-Li (solid state, multivalent, etc). In particular, I’m interested in technique development to further understand the operation and degradation of these complicated systems. I am passionate about these technologies and would love to pursue a career that can facilitate the transition to these greener technologies.
My research includes the imaging of electrodes at different state of health, subject to different cycling protocols via X-ray Computed Tomography, and using novel methods to evaluate any structural changes that have occurred. This is completed by imaging at different resolutions, enabling macro, micro and nano-scale features to be identified and understood. Following from my PhD I hope to remain within the energy sector, working on providing a cleaner and reliable energy source.
