I’ve been working with a great team of authors for a year to develop a briefing paper about low carbon fuels for aviation. We’re looking in depth at biofuels, power-to-liquid fuels (AKA synthetic fuels) and hydrogen. This is the first briefing paper that I’m taking though the production process in my time at IMSE. There are another 2 in the works, due out later this year.
We’re launching this on 1 March 2023 at 15.00 in South Kensington. Book your tickets here. This event in joint with the newly-founded Brahmal Vasudevan Institute for Sustainable Aviation.
Researchers are human too, though possibly more curious than many. So why do many recognise that interdisciplinary research is valuable, but don’t want to do it? What are the barriers to doing this work?
One of the core goals of Imperial is to do transdisciplinary research. What does this mean?
Over 2022, we’re catching up with some of the people who came to study at IMSE on the Molecular Science and Engineering MRes. They are now going on to a wide variety of exiting jobs in the world. The IMSE MRes has been running since 2017, so there are more than 30 MRes alumni! This week, we speak to Griffin Gui, who studied at IMSE in 2018-2019.
Over the last 2 years or so, IMSE has been working with specialist institutions who focus on energy research. We have now produced two briefing papers about building better batteries.
One of the fun things I have to do in my job is find ways to increase collaborative research between IMSE and commercial companies. This is complicated. Research is risky, it’s expensive, it’s built on constantly generating new ideas, and this only happens with the right mix of the right people. How can we make all of this happen? One of the ways is with big collaborative research projects which are part-funded by industry and partly by public investment. In this post, I look at how this works.
It’s time to meet another alumna of the IMSE Molecular Science and Engineering MRes. This week, we speak to Jessica Govey-Scotland, who studied at IMSE in 2020-2021.
Just a short entry this week to point you towards a blog entry on the Imperial College London student blog. Fei Gao, who studied with IMSE on the MRes in Molecular Engineering in 2020-21, has written about her experience.
It has been a time of endings and beginnings. It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to summer and hello to shorter days, falling leaves and cooler temperatures. It’s also that time of year when we say goodbye to one cohort of MRes students and hello to the new year’s cohort.
