Alison graduated in 2013 with a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge. Her interest in electrochemistry brought her to the University of Sheffield, where Alison spent a year researching methods to determine the health of lithium ion batteries, with a particular focus on using impedance spectroscopy data.
In 2014 She joined the 4CU project, as a PhD student. Alison is researching the use of impedance spectroscopy to characterise different processes occurring in high temperature solid oxide cells, used for the co-electrolysis of carbon dioxide and steam.
