PhD studentship granted from the Energy Institute

We are pleased to announced that we have been granted a PhD studentship from the Energy Institute. In collaboration with Dr. M. Ismail and Prof. M. Pourkashanian, this studentship will enable us to further investigate novel carbon foams. The goal is to correlate the material’s intrinsic electronic properties to its overall efficacity in hydrogen fuel cells.

Details about this exciting position are coming soon…
