Position: EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellow, School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews
Talk title: Towards operando generation of nanomaterials in SOCs
Dr. Xiangling Yue is a Research Fellow at the School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews. My current project is looking at the application of exsolution materials in solid oxide cells (SOCs), particularly the generation and optimisation of nanomaterials through high temperature electrolysis operations. In 2014, I obtained a Ph.D with a thesis entitled ‘The Development of Alternative Cathodes for High Temperature Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cells’, under the supervision of Prof John Irvine. The work was part of the EPSRC SUPERGEN project ‘Delivery of Sustainable Hydrogen’, through which I focused on material development for, and the electrochemistry involved in, high temperature electrolysis. After PhD, I continued work with John as a postdoctoral researcher for a few years, before applying the EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship to start my independent research. I have experienced in cell manufacture, ceramic processing, characterisations and microstructure engineering of SOCs materials.
