Jamie stated “My MSc (Eng) research project focused on the development of composite carbon electrodes in electrochemical supercapacitors for energy storage applications. During the course of this research I became extremely interested in the materials science underpinning the production of large micro-scale surface areas on activated carbon particles to increase energy and power density. After graduating in 2013 and receiving the departmental prize for Best Masters Research Project I joined the Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Materials Science and Engineering Department to broaden my understanding and appreciation of the fundamental and enabling role materials science plays in engineering applications and technological development.”
