"The events that SCI creates are numerous and informative. This impressed me even with restrictions in 2020 there were so many events for all science topics."
What are your research interests?
Energy materials with interests in ceramic processing and electrochemistry involved. Particular focus on battery technology with some knowledge in SOFC.
How did you first get involved with SCI?
Introduced during a seminar with the intention of being the middleman between science and business. This interests me as I may want to work in that gap. The events that SCI creates are numerous and informative. This impressed me even with restrictions in 2020 there were so many events for all science topics.
What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
Hoping to widen my network and gain some experience in working in the gap between Industry and academia. As well as improve my leadership and teamwork skills. I imagine I will gain a greater understanding of the current energy industries will also expanding my scientific interests. Ultimately want to see if this is where I channel my enthusiasm and skills.
SCI aims to be ‘where science meets business’. What is the potential commercial application of your research?
My research is looking to solve the problems with solid-state oxide battery technology. By optimizing the interface we can improve the volume and weight energy density of electric car batteries will also remove the safety issues of conventional batteries. A few of the techniques can be used for other types of batteries.
