The central aim of my research is to discover the degradation mechanisms of materials used in energy applications, to aid the design of new materials with improved resilience to degradation processes.
I have largely focussed on nuclear materials (fusion and fission) as these are subject to the most extreme conditions and therefore pose the greatest challenge, but I continually transfer the knowledge to solar cells, solid electrolyte fuel cells, electrochemical capacitor and batteries. Specific areas of expertise include:
