Delivered by Clare Grey FRS, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, this year's Energy Materials Group Annual Lecture will provide a overview of the challenges associated with making increasingly cheaper, high energy density and faster charging batteries for transport and grid storage. Clare will also share insights from her own research in this field including;

  • How materials function in operating batteries
  • New magnetic resonance method to study batteries
  • Applications to different systems

Speaker Information

Clare P Grey FRS is Professor of Chemistry at Cambridge University, UK, and a Fellow of Pembroke College Cambridge.  She is currently the director of the EPSRC Centre for Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems (CAM-IES) and a member of the Expert Panel of the Faraday Institution. Clare holds a Royal Society Professorship and has received a number of Honorary PhD Degrees including Universities of Orleans and Lancaster University. In 2019, Clare was awarded the Charles Hatchett Award from IOM3 and the RSC John Goodenough Award.

Her current research interests include the use of solid-state NMR and diffraction-based methods to determine structure-function relationships in materials for energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), conversion (fuel cells) and carbon capture.
