Webinar Info…

Topic: How to make hydrogen fuel cells cheaper and more efficient.

Presenter: Dr Quentin Meyer – Fuel Cell Cluster Leader, University of New South Wales (UNSW)

Dr Quentin Meyer obtained a master’s degree in Electrochemical Engineering and Electrochemical Research in 2011 from the Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble-INP, Grenoble, France). He defended his PhD in Advanced Diagnosis for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells in 2015 working for Prof Dan Brett and was awarded an Award for Research Excellence (University College London, London UK). After a successful post-doctoral position in 3-D imaging of hydrogen fuel cells at University College London, he then relocated to Australia in 2017. Following some consultancy, teaching emerging start-ups hydrogen fuel cells and lithium-ion battery engineering, he joined Prof Zhao’s group as a senior post-doctoral researcher and laboratory manager (>20 people) at the University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). After setting up the new hydrogen laboratory and helping secure research funding, he currently leads the exciting hydrogen fuel cells cluster. His research topics deal with the electrocatalysis of complex reactions, focusing on the structure-to-performance relationships, and investigating the activity and durability of low-cost electrocatalysts for fuel cell and electrolyser applications. Until May 2023, he has published 52 journal articles, filed 1 patent, and given over 25 communications at national and international conferences and over 20 invited seminars. He leads the HSA chapter in New South Wales.

About this webinar series…

The Hydrogen Society of Australia (HSA) has grown considerably over the past year, with successful initiatives which have engaged junior researchers, such as our poster competition on the Australian Hydrogen Day (2022 10 08).  This year, we wish to further bridge the gap between industry and academia, launching the Academics webinar series, on a monthly basis from May onwards. The objective of this initiative is both to raise the level of industry awareness and expertise, and deepen the relationships between industry and academia within the HSA.

Prominent Australian academics will be invited to provide a short overview of their research areas (20-30 mins), across the hydrogen ecosystem (ie. hydrogen production, storage, and utilization), followed by an industry focussed Q&A (30 mins).
