Title: Rethinking nanoparticles in energy materials and devices: formation, functionality and role


I am an early-career academic with leading contributions in energy materials and catalysis. I have co-authored 30 papers (over 2000 citations and H-index of 14), including five in Nature-family journals, as well as 3 patents. I hold a PhD from the University of St Andrews, UK (2013) on materials and devices for energy conversion. In 2020, I joined the University of Strathclyde as Lecturer, Chancellor’s Fellow, having worked before at Newcastle University and the University of St Andrews on a wide range of applications. My expertise includes materials design, preparation, characterization, testing for applications, integration in devices, X-ray diffraction lab/synchrotron, scanning/transmission electron microscopy, electrochemistry, solid oxide fuel/electrolysis cells, in situ/operando measurements, and structure/property modelling.
