Beth’s PhD focus is sustainable Li-ion batteries. Cobalt used within conventional Li-ion systems presents economic, environmental and societal issues due to its high cost, low natural abundance and unethical mining concerns. Beth’s research will be to explore alternative materials that will allow the discontinuation of cobalt use, and consider the wider implications of using such materials.
