Mr Arthur Fordham profile picture
  • Student
  • Dept of Chemical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science
Arthur undertook his Chemistry (MChem) degree at Worcester College, University of Oxford and graduated in June 2021. His Master’s research focused on sodium-ion batteries, linking to the NEXGENNA Faraday Project. He investigated the electrochemical properties and structural phases in the layered cathode material as synthesis temperature and composition was varied. He then returned to his home city to join the EIL and the SafeBatt team as a PhD student in October 2021. 
Research Summary
Arthur’s research aims to improve the fundamental understanding of the root causes of cell failure and the mechanisms of failure propagation. He uses hybrid diagnostic techniques of acoustic measurements and electrochemical noise to determine specific signs of degradation and battery state of health in a range of battery types. He is interested to use fundamental chemistry to investigate the microstructure of electrodes whilst cycling to understand phase changes and how they lead to macroscopic problems for performance and safety.
