Biography I graduated from the University of Sheffield with an MEng in Chemical Engineering in 2020. In my final year, I completed a dissertation on the optimisation of the spherical agglomeration process supervised by Prof Jim Litster and Dr Kate Pitt. My research involves the investigation of various bridging liquid properties and process parameters and their influence on the final morphological properties of agglomerates.
Research My current research is supervised by Dr Rachel Smith and Dr Denis Cumming as part of the Nextrode project under the Faraday Institution. The focus of my research is to develop an understanding of the long- and short-range electronic conductivity pathways within lithium-ion battery cathodes established by mechanofusion. My work involves the investigation of different mixing mechanisms, as well as the relationship between mechanofusion, particle and electrode structure and the final electrochemical performance.
