The Sustainable Energy Systems Group (EnSys group) enables the researchers gain a fair knowledge on design, analysis and simulation of state-of-the-art energy storage and energy conversion devices including, but not limited to, Li-ion batteries, fuel cells, flow batteries, and green H2 generators.

We employ a synergistic combination of advanced experimental characterization and diagnostics together with multiphysics mathematical modeling, computer simulation, and additive manufacturing to understand the interplay between various transport and kinetic phenomena in sustainable energy systems.

Our research focuses on the fundamental understanding, efficient design, novel materials, recycling & re-use, and developing high-fidelity modeling and simulation tools for energy storage and energy conversion devices. For example, we have been working on real-time sensing for defect detections and investigating the transport and related phenomena in Li-ion batteries, proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), anion exchange membrane fuel cells (AEMFCs), and flow batteries to achieve improved performance and design for vehicle and drone applications. For further information, see the research section.

We are always looking for talented graduate students and post-docs. If you are interested in doing Ph.D./M.Sc. with Dr. Das, please apply directly to Mechanical Engineering Research Program and refer Dr. Das as a potential supervisor. You can find out more about our graduate studies and application process in this LINK.

Scholarship/Fellowship holders are strongly encouraged to email directly to Dr. Das (prodip.das AT newcastle DOT ac DOT uk) with a subject line of "Scholarship/ Fellowship holder". Due to the large volume of emails, replies can only be sent to successful candidates.
