The course is offered by the electrochemical science and engineering group at Imperial College London – please see  Contributors include:

Prof. Nigel Brandon OBE FREng (Course Director) is BG Chair in Sustainable Gas, Director Hydrogen and Fuel Cells SUPERGEN Hub, Director Sustainable Gas Institute, Head Electrochemical science and engineering group, Imperial College London. Prof Brandon was a founder of fuel cell company Ceres Power in 2001, and has over 20 years experience in the science and engineering of fuel cell devices.  He was awarded the 2007 Royal Academy of Engineering Silver Medal for his contribution to fuel cell engineering leading to commercialisation, and the 2014 ASME Francis Bacon medal for his contribution to fuel cell research and education.

Dr. Billy Wu is a lecturer in the Dyson School of Design Engineering with research activities in lithium-ion batteries, supercapacitors, hydrogen fuel cells, redox flow cells and 3D printing. He leads the autonomous systems and advanced manufacturing division in the department.

Dr. Enrique Ruiz-Trejo held a lecturership  at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México before taking up a Humboldt scholarship at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research. In 2009 he moved to Denmark as Senior Scientist at Risoe National Laboratories for Sustainable Energy followed by a position as Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews. Since, 2012 he has been based at Imperial College London, where his research is focussed on materials for energy applications and gas separation membranes, the development of electrodes for fuel cells and the manufacture of metal-ceramic composites.

Dr. Paul Boldrin received his PhD in materials science, working on continuous hydrothermal synthesis of nanomaterials for catalysis. This was followed by work on the high throughput discovery of catalysts. His research interests include characterisation of the catalytic and electrocatalytic processes occurring in fuel  cells and membrane reactors, and the use of nanomaterials in these devices.

Dr. Farid Tariq is an expert in advanced characterisation and analysis of energy devices using 3D-imaging, quantification and modelling. He has over 10 years experience integrating Electron (TEM, SEM, FIBSEM) and X-ray for multi-length scale imaging of energy materials. He is also co-founder of IQM Elements Energy Consultancy developing Imaging software for quantification of 3D-imaged structures.
