Research Project: Understanding the cycling and degradation of alloy anodes for Li and Na-ion batteries with in-situ and in-operando microscopy and spectroscopy
Supervisor: Tom Miller (UCL)
Samia graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc Honors degree in Chemistry. She then moved to Imperial College London and completed an MRes in Catalysis: Chemistry and Engineering. During this time, she was part of the Petit group, Multifunctional Nanomaterials. Her final year project was in collaboration with the start-up company Zero Emissions Livestock Project, where she worked to reduce methane emissions generated from our livestock, by utilizing the adsorption mechanism of the well-known porous materials metal-organic frameworks. Samia has now begun a PhD in the Electrical Innovation Lab under the supervision of Thomas Miller, Chris Howard and Magda Tritirici. She is now working on understanding the cycling and degradation mechanisms in anode materials for Na ion batteries using in-situ and in-operando microscopy and spectroscopy.
