I received a BEng in Engineering Sciences and a PhD in Electrochemical Engineering from the University of Southampton. My PhD project focused on the development of a zinc-cerium redox flow batteries. After my graduation, I have held a number of research positions in several leading universities/institutions under the supervisions of top experts in the areas of energy storage and material processing. My research interests lie in the fields of electrochemical devices, mathematical modelling, mechanical testing and novel characterization/manufacturing techniques. I was also awarded a ´´Marie Curie fellowship´ and have been proactive in seeking teaching experiences and collaborating with industrial companies.
