Role Purpose

To create and contribute to the creation of knowledge by undertaking a specified range of activities within an EPSRC funded project on thermal energy storage area.

Main Responsibilities

• Plan and conduct own original research

• Formulation, characterisation, optimisation and manufacture of composite thermal energy storage materials

• Investigate fundamentally the mechanism of thermal properties changes of the composite materials

• Design, construction and experimentally measure flow and heat transfer behaviours in thermal storage devices

• Interactions with both academic and industrial collaborators in the programme consortium, and building internal & external contacts and networks.

• Helping with training PhD students and other group members who are working on similar areas.

• Writing journal and conference publications.

• Organising review meetings and seminars.
