Making a Material Difference to Green Energy (Batteries Included)
The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) invites you to their first online Annual Lecture. Saiful Islam Professor of Materials Chemistry at the University of Bath will discuss new materials that are critical to enable the next-generation of clean energy technologies.
The lecture will be followed by Q&A.
- 16.00 – 16.05 Introduction from Provost Professor Ian Walmsley
- 16.05-17.00 Annual Lecture: Professor Saiful Islam
- 17.00 – 17.30 Q&A chaired by IMSE Co-director Professor Nicholas Harrison
The development and deeper understanding of new materials are critical to enable the next-generation of clean energy technologies. This talk highlights the use of advanced modelling methods in synergy with experimental work to gain atomic-scale insights into novel materials for lithium batteries and perovskite solar cells.
About the speaker
Saiful is Professor of Materials Chemistry at the University of Bath, having previously completed a Chemistry degree and PhD at University College London, a postdoctoral fellowship on oxide superconductors at the Eastman Kodak Labs in Rochester, New York, USA, and a lectureship at the University of Surrey. His research interests include computer modelling of new materials for lithium and sodium batteries, solid oxide fuel cells and perovskite solar cells.
Saiful’s research is supported by the EPSRC, and he has received several awards including the Wolfson Research Merit Award from the Royal Society and the Sustainable Energy Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has presented more than 80 invited talks at international conferences, has around 220 publications and gave the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in 2016 for BBC TV.
He sits on the Public Engagement Committee of the Royal Society and is a Patron of Humanists UK.
The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) is one of Imperial College London’s Global Institutes, drawing on the strength of its four faculties to address some of the grand challenges facing the world today. The Institute’s activities are focused on tackling problems where molecular innovation plays an important role.
