Charlotte Roe is a PhD candidate in the Dyson School of Design Engineering, where she works with Dr Billy Wu and the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group on lifetime degradation studies for immersion-cooled systems in electric vehicles. She is funded by EPSRC and is part of the Shell University Technology Centre.
Her work focuses on primarily the effect single-phase immersion fluids have on the lifetime and performance of lithium-ion cells through COMSOL physics-based modelling and experimental validation.
Charlotte has recently written a review paper on Immersion cooling which has been published in the Journal of Power Source. This paper discusses important areas of thermal management for lithium-ion electric vehicles and highlights some of the areas within immersion cooling which require further investigation.
Previously she has been awarded a first in Physics at the University of Leeds for her MPhys and BSc degrees, where she presented her Master's thesis on PET-CT image reconstruction at the Royal Society.
