Paul Shearing

University College London, UK

Dr Paul Shearing is a Reader in Chemical Engineering at University College London. His research interests cover a broad range of electrochemical engineering themes with a particular interest in the relationship between performance and microstructure for energy materials: an area in which he has published more than 80 papers in the past 5 years.
He is a pioneer of ‘4-D Tomography’ as recognised by the award of a RAEng Fellowship (2012-16) entitled ‘4-dimensional Tomography of Electrochemical Devices’ and has used most of the world's major synchrotron light sources. He leads the UK STFC Global Challenge Network in Batteries and Electrochemical Devices, which brings together leading international researchers from industry and academia.
In 2006 he graduated from Birmingham with the top first in Chemical Engineering, and in 2009 he took a PhD from Imperial College. He is the recipient of the Salter’s Graduate Prize and the Janet Watson memorial prize for research excellence. In 2014 he was named the Institute of Chemical Engineers, Young Chemical Engineer of the Year in Academia and in 2016 the RAEng Engineers Trust Young Engineer of the Year.
