Dr Gregory Offer is a senior lecturer in Mechanical Engineering working at the interface between the science and engineering of electrochemical devices, mostly focused on automotive applications. Greg trained as a fundamental electrochemist before moving to engineering, his research portfolio focuses on understanding the limits of operation, degradation mechanisms and failure modes of batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells in real world applications, and the impacts and consequences on system design, integration and control. This means developing the tools and techniques that industry needs in order to solve the problems they will be facing in the future. This involves both modelling and the design of experiments in order to validate models capable of working at the extremes of operation. Greg also manages the Departments Formula Student team called Imperial Racing Green. This involves over a 100 undergraduate engineers a year in designing, building, testing and racing, fuel cell, battery electric and hybrid vehicles.
