Summary

 

Summary

Dr Na Ni is an Imperial College Research Fellow in the Department of Materials.
She has extensive expertise in high-resolution analysis using advanced electron and ion microscopy and her research is centred on the study of the role of nanoscale structure and chemistry in controlling material properties for improving materials design and processing. Her current research activity is mainly focused on materials for energy applications including nuclear materials, electrochemical ceramics for solid oxide fuel cells and structured nano-carbon composites materials for batteries.
