The development of the next generation of hybrid chemistry battery packs and Battery Management Systems is the focus of the Electrochemical Science & Engineering Group. Our aim is to significantly improve the performance and lifetime of electrochemical storage devices, including high energy supercapacitors. Due to the nature of the research, there is a high level of industrial liaison ongoing within this group, making this an ideal opportunity for someone looking to enhance their contacts in this field.
The development of continuum-scale models is key in determining the electrochemical, thermal and chemical behaviour of super-capacitators. The models will also need to be experimentally validated, hence although this post is mostly simulation based there is the opportunity for a degree of experimental validation and interpretation of test data.
