About the Winner

Saiful Islam grew up in Crouch End, north London and studied at University College London, completing his PhD with Professor Richard Catlow FRS. He then held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Eastman Kodak Labs in Rochester, New York, USA, working on high Tc superconductors. Saiful returned to the UK to to become Lecturer, then Reader at the the University of Surrey, before joining the University of Bath in early 2006 as Professor of Materials Chemistry.

Saiful's research interests lie in the field of solid-state materials for clean energy applications, focusing on novel materials for lithium batteries and solid oxide fuel cells, applying computational techniques in close synergy with experimental studies.  He has served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Materials Chemistry, and currently sits on the Advisory Board of Energy and Environmental Science. He has presented over 45 invited conference talks, and was awarded the RSC Francis Bacon Medal (2008) and the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit award (2013).
