Josh was born west of London and studied a Master’s in Chemistry at the University of Oxford, during which he spent a short stint pretending to work in Paris. After teaching English and the sciences in the Spanish city of Valencia and the colder climes of Belfast, he returned home(ish) to study Solid Oxide Fuel Cells as part of the CDT in the Advanced Characterisation of Materials at UCL. When not working, he enjoys racket sports, eating and not understanding politics.
Josh is researching anode degradation in HT-SOFCs, with particular focus on the agglomeration of nickel in the cermet electrode. This work involves the use of electrochemical and tomographic techniques, with a view to improving and predicting the durability of fuel cell technology.
