Recipient of the RSC Journal of Materials Chemistry lectureship in 2017, her research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of functional nanomaterials in particular for applications in energy storage and the environment, with an emphasis on understanding their intimate structure-property interplay. She leads multiple multi-institutional, interdisciplinary research activities, including the UK Faraday Institution project on Next Generation Cathodes for Li-ion batteries (FutureCat).
She is deeply committed to early career researcher mentoring, the promotion of women in science and engineering and public outreach activities, sitting on the Faraday Institution Diversity Panel, EPSRC’s Advanced Materials Working Group and RSC’s Equity in Publishing group.
She is associate editor of IOP Progress in Energy, editorial board member of J. Mater. Chem. A, Nanoscale, and Chemistry of Materials and sits on multiple beamtime access panels in the UK and EU. More information on her group’s research activities can be found here.
