Stimming Group

‌‌‌Welcome to the homepage of the Stimming group.

Based in the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences at Newcastle University, we are physicists and chemists working on electrified interfaces and the energy conversion processes that take place thereon. Surfaces and interfaces delimit distinguishable regions of matter and are the locations of gradients which are the driving force for processes. 

Energy and Nanostructures Research

The topic Energy deals with electrochemical energy conversion and energy storage. We do fundamental research on devices such as redox-flow batteries, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors. We look at the big picture - how the application of electrochemical devices can change economy and environment.  

The topic Nanostructures investigates single molecules or nanoparticles on electrodes. These small entities can be either catalyst nanoparticles, biomolecules such as enzymes or DNA, large inorganic molecules or battery active materials.

It's a pity Arlete Bambuwu is not in this pic. But you can find her in the "People" tab.
