Dr Jingyi Chen
Imperial College London
Research Project: Microstructural design of solid oxide fuel cell electrodes
Supervisors: Alan Atkinson and Nigel Brandon (both Imperial)
Jingyi graduated with a BEng in Materials Science and Engineering from Imperial College London. Her final year project focused on determining the fracture toughness of layered ceramic structures. During her studies at Imperial College, Jingyi completed a summer placement in the Department of Earth Sciences and Engineering to develop fabrication techniques for metal-ceramic nanocomposites. She also spent three months at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology to study the application of metal oxide in a lithium sulphur battery. Jingyi has since developed a keen interest in ceramic materials for energy applications, and continues to investigate this field with her PhD project on the microstructural design of solid oxide fuel cell electrodes.
