Dr Mayur Bonkile is a research associate at the Dyson School of Design Engineering, where he works with Prof. Gregory Offer and Dr Billy Wu on physics-based Li-ion battery modelling, understanding battery degradation, thermal management systems and control. 

He joined the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group at Imperial College London in 2022 to work on PyBaMM under the Faraday Institution's Multiscale Modelling project. Prior to this, he was awarded a PhD in the integration of renewable hybrid power systems with battery energy storage from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. Mayur did his Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering (2011) and Master in Thermal Sciences (2015).Research InterestOverarching Goals


Mayur is a science communicator and loves to explain scientific concepts to the public. He won the FameLab India 2017 from the British Council at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK. He was the finalist for the EURAXESS Science Slam India 2017 and the winner of the Swiss Science Slam 2019.
