Online webinar - 16:00-17:00 (BST)
This year the battery industry marks the 29th anniversary of the launch of an energy storage game-changer: the Li-ion rechargeable battery (LIB). However, the present day market is actually quite complicated, as energy requirements have grown considerably in the magnitude and speed that their power needs delivery or renewal.
Melanie Loveridge is Associate Professor of Electrochemical Materials at WMG, University of Warwick. Her research is centred on a number of themes which include:
• New materials discovery: High capacity anode materials such as silicon and graphene hybrids, niobium oxides and metal organic frameworks.
• Battery Forensics: Post-mortem analysis to understand failure mechanisms and generate published case studies.
• Correlative metrology to better understand property-structure-performance relationships.
Previously to joining WMG Mel was a specialist at Nexeon (a spin-out company from Imperial College), developing materials for energy storage. She has conducted research projects and technology transfers with companies such as Akzo Nobel and Corus Colours and holds several global patents on battery materials. Mel is a member of the Graphene Flagship and a Co-investigator with the Faraday Institute, having collaborated with key UK and European academia over the last few years since joining WMG in 2014.
