Congratulations to Dr Ibrahim Aminu on receipt of Marie Curie Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr Ibrahim Aminu on receipt of Marie Curie Fellowship

Dr Ibrahim Saana Aminu awarded Marie Skłodowska -Curie (MSCA) Fellowships Ibrahim Saana Aminu’s project will focus on the development of novel porous graphite cathodes with chemically tuneable-architecture (surface morphology, pore-hierarchy, rigidity and conductivity) for advanced rechargeable aluminium-ion batteries (AlBs). The key challenges hampering the progress of AlBs will be addressed at the interface of Materials […]
