This month we are joined by Laura Lander, Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at King's College London, who will be presenting on a multi-scale research approach for sustainable and resilient batteries.

Laura Lander

Speaker bio

Laura obtained her PhD from College de France in Paris and later joined the University of Tokyo, where she was awarded a JSPS postdoctoral research fellowship. She then moved to Imperial College London as a Faraday Institution postdoctoral researcher in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group (Mechanical Engineering Department) before joining King’s College London.

Her research aims to tackle the challenges of current energy storage systems and, ultimately, to develop high-performance sustainable battery devices. She applies a multi-scale research approach working at the interface between materials science i.e. the design and characterisation of energy storage materials and engineering including life cycle assessment and techno-economics.

This is an online event.

Net Zero Interdisciplinary Seminar Series

The Net Zero Interdisciplinary Seminar Series is the flagship seminar series for King’s College London’s Net Zero Centre, providing a platform for cross-pollination between academia, industry and government to develop novel research projects to achieve Net Zero.

Every month, we host a speaker to discuss a new research idea and seek contributions from audience members on a proposed challenge. A half-hour talk is followed by a discussion, and we encourage speakers to engage with colleagues on research related to our four priority areas, decarbonisation, sustainable manufacturing, equitable resource allocation and resilient infrastructure.

About us

The Net Zero Centre at King's is dedicated to addressing the challenges of decarbonising our society and reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing, infrastructure, and cities. It serves as hub for scientific, technological and engineering research geared towards this challenge.

Based in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (NMES), the Centre works across the boundaries of disciplines at King’s from geography and business to law and social science to deliver solutions for sustainable development. The Centre fosters the next generation of King’s change-makers by educating scientists and engineers on the holistic context of these challenges and developing technologically aware social scientists, lawyers, and policy makers.
