Ami Shah


PhD Researcher


In North-West London, born and raised 

Playing ping pong is how she spent most of her days 

Serving, top spinning, smashing all cool 

And watching trash TV outside of school 

When she realised a change would be good 

And moved to Nottingham, a new neighbourhood 

Where she studied for her undergrad in Chemistry and missed the city 

And said “I’m moving back with my Master’s degree and family in London” 


Having completed a Master’s project involving activated carbons as electrodes for metal-sulphur batteries in Nottingham, Ami was inspired to start a PhD studying the synthesis and characterisation of materials for energy storage at UCL. She is interested in graphene and graphene composites as alternatives to conventional graphite anodes in lithium-ion batteries.
