From Bits to Batteries - Cafe Scientifique preview

On April 3rd 2017, the Sheffield branch of Cafe Scientifique will be be hosting FMD member, Dr Chris Handley, as he presents his talk, "From Bits to Batteries".

Cafe Scientifique is place for academics and researchers to present their work to a public audience, consisting largely of non-experts. Outreach opportunities such as these are an ideal way to demonstrate the value of academic research, and the value of investment into research.

For the FMD group, and Chris in particular, this is a chance to show the public how we are searching for novel functional materials, and what uses we are designing these materials for. Furthermore, it is a chance for Chris to show the importance of underpinning fundamental research in understanding how the chemistry of these materials, through the use of simulations, influences the properties of these materials, and so allow us to design and discover, novel materials.

In his talk, Chris will use a couple of case studies from his own research to demonstrate who we design models to simulate chemistry and thus materials, and his vision for future methods for simulating materials.

Chris' talk will take place at 7pm, the 3rd of April, 2017, at the Showroom Cafe Bar in Sheffield.
