Niall is currently a postdoctoral research associate in the Electrochemical Science & Engineering group, working within the Mechanical Engineering department. His research focuses on lithium-ion batteries, studying their electrochemical and thermal performance, and investigating degradation effects.
Niall obtained his PhD in Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, supervised by Prof. Lee Cronin, working on electrochemical flow systems for green hydrogen production and energy storage.
