Lecturer in Chemical Engineering


Gaurav Gupta is Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at Lancaster University. His research interests involve electrochemical engineering, catalyst development for energy storage and generation systems (Electrolysis, Fuel cells). After graduating with a degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from National Institute of Technology Rourkela, India in 2007, He went on to do a Masters in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India where he developed his interests in electrochemistry and materials development. He was offered a College of Engineering and Physical Sciences Scholarship to do a PhD (2010-2014) on development of Bimetallic Pt-Cr electrocatalysts for PEMFCs from the University of Birmingham (working with Professor Paula M Mendes and Dr Surbhi Sharma). He joined as a post-doctoral researcher in 2015 on an Innovate UK project at Imperial College London on the development of low-cost proton exchange membrane fuel cells in partnership with Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), Arcola Energy, Lohmann Technologies, 4th Energy Wave. In 2016, he joined Newcastle University as a research associate where he worked on various projects related to Alkaline Fuel Cells, Alkaline electrolysers, Catalysis.
