Biography I received my Ph.D. in 2018 with a topic of creating tuneable agglomerates via 3D printing from Monash University, Australia. Prior to joining the University of Sheffield, I was a research associate at University of Birmingham and University of Bath (2018–2020).
My research interests include but not limited to: powder technology, energy storage device and additive manufacturing (3D printing). I have published about 20 papers including several international journals, e.g. AIChE Journal, Chemical Engineering Science, Powder Technology, Energy, and Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing.
Research I joined the University of Sheffield as a Faraday Institution Research Fellow, working with Dr Rachel Smith and Dr Denis Cumming. My current research focuses on numerical modelling for next generation battery electrodes: -Discrete Element Method (DEM) modelling for lithium battery manufacturing process, e.g. calendering, mixing. -Design of lithium battery electrode microstructures with optimized performance.
