Background

Introduction

Dr. Gaurav Gupta is a research associate at Newcastle University in the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials. His research is focussed on Alkaline Fuel Cells. He is currently working on an EPSRC funded Impact Acceleration Project with a focus on improving the operating temperature of the Alkaline Polymeric Fuel Cells.

He was earlier working as a research associate at Imperial College London on the development of low cost proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) funded by Innovate UK in partnership with Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), Arcola Energy, Lohmann Technologies, 4th Energy Wave.  

He obtained his PhD from University of Birmingham in 2014 on Bimetallic Pt-Cr electrocatalysts for PEMFCs under the supervision of Professor Paula. M. Mendes and Dr. Surbhi Sharma. During his PhD, he investigated the synthesis of Pt-Cr as alloy and core-shell nanoparticles using different techniques for use as electrocatalysts. Prior to his PhD he studied Master of Technology (Honours) from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. He graduated from National Institute of Technology Rourkela, India with a Bachelor of Technology (Honours) in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
