Biography

Lee Johnson received a MChem (Hons.) degree from Newcastle University in 2006 after which he completed a PhD in physical chemistry and electrochemistry at the University of Nottingham. In 2011 he was awarded a EPSRC Doctoral Prize for the development of scanning electrochemical microscopy methods. In 2012 he joined the research group of Prof P.G. Bruce FRS (University of St Andrews 2012-2014, University of Oxford 2014-2017). As a PDRA, he developed a research programme focused on understanding the elementary processes taking place within the lithium-O2 battery using fundamental electrochemical methods. In 2017 he was awarded a Nottingham Research Fellowship in the Propulsion Futures Beacon of Excellence and the School of Chemistry.

Current Research

Our research focuses on understanding the chemistry that underpins advanced batteries and how this understanding can be used to unlock a new generation of energy storage technologies. The approach combines electrochemistry and a range of operando analytical methods.

We have projects available in understanding degradation in the lithium-ion battery and development of the emerging sodium-ion battery.

Future roles exploring the fundamental chemistry of the Mg battery and the lithium-air battery are anticipated.
