<p style="margin-top:-20px; text-align:justify;">Liam Bird is is a research student working on the PHD project: 2D materials and Hard Carbon in Lithium Batteries.
His main supervisor is Dr Cate Ducati and his second supervisors are Prof. Andrea Ferrari and Prof. Vasant Kumar.
Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries, able to store ~5 times the energy per unit weight as conventional lithium-ion batteries, have potential applications in transport, aerospace, and storage of renewably-generated electricity. However, sulfur's low electrical
Graphene is a promising candidate for use in host matrices in Li-S batteries, due to its high conductivity, high surface area, and compatibility with a range of scalable synthesis techniques. Functionalised graphene, including graphene oxide, provides add
Liam is part of the Engineering department and is currently based in the Cambridge Graphene Centre, in the Electrical Engineering Division. He is a member of Darwin College.
