Alessandro Gramegna

University College London


Research Project: Superinsulators for Energy Storage.

Supervisors: Dr. John Labram (UCL), Professor Martyn McLachlan (ICL)

Alessandro graduated from Imperial College London with an MSci in Chemistry with Molecular Physics in 2023. His final research project focused on developing a molecular mechanics computational method to predict and investigate the stacking configuration stability of metal phthalocyanines.

His PhD project is focused on the study and exploitation of superinsulators for energy storage, particularly to generate knowledge on the relationship between temperature, breakdown field strength, and storage density on capacitors which use a superinsulator as the medium between the plates.

The CDT provided me with the tools to develop my career as a researcher and to participate in Outreach activities to broaden my skills. I really enjoyed my time as a student in the CDT and look forward to continuing collaborations with the research groups there.
