Welcome to Dr Amit Kumar who has just joined the group to work on an industry funded project. Amit is a polymer scientist with expertise in the synthesis of high-performance polymers from biomass. Looking forward to working with you Amit!
The Kennedy Group enjoyed an excellent hiking trip to Lough Muskry in Co Tipperary alongside our friends and collaborators in the Ryan, Geaney and Singh groups. As a reward for our efforts, we stopped on the way home for a well earned “refreshment”!
Welcome to Dr Fernando Otero Díez who has just joined the group after recently completing his PhD with Professor Edmond Magner. Also, welcome to Dr Chandra Sekhar who has just joined the group to work on Na-ion battery development. Great to have you both on board!
Imed’s first journal article was published this week and is available at this link. In his article, Imed performed the widest ranging investigation of its kind into the effect cure temperature has on the physico-chemical, electrical and mechanical characteristics of polyimide. Nice work Imed!
Welcome to Dr Marina Moraes Leite and Misbah Mushtaq who have just joined the group to work on battery electrode development. Looking forward to working with you both!
Kieran’s article was published this week and is available at the link below. In his article, Kieran performed investigated the intrinsic relationship between equivalent circuit elements and components of an impedance spectra (frequency, real, imaginary and phase) and exploited these to estimate the state of a Li-ion battery at a given point of time without the need of continuous historical tracking information. The paper is available at the link below.
