Personal Statement

Electrochemical Engineering for Energy Storage and Conversion

My research is focused on electrochemical devices for energy storage and hydrogen. My focus is on developing innovative diagnostic techniques for elucidating degradation mechanisms and engineering devices with improved performance and durability. In addition, I am interested in novel device concepts, scale-up and system integration, with tangible impact in industry. My specific research goals include:

  • Using embedded sensors for characterisation of polymer electrolyte membrane devices, 
  • Engineering novel biomass-fuelled devices for hydrogen production and biomass valorisation. 
  • Development of metal oxide-based electrochemical capacitors and other novel devices in collaboration with industry partners.
