Dr Laura Lander
Lecturer in Engineering
Dr Laura Lander is a Lecturer at King's Department of Engineering.
Laura's research focus 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 and engineering including life cycle assessment and techno-economics across the battery value chain.
Laura has a transdisciplinary background in energy storage technologies covering the design and characterisation of energy storage materials as well as the evaluation of environmental and economic implications of batteries in a real-world application context. She 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.
