Biography

 

Alex Chroneos is presently (2016-today) a Professor in Material Physics at Coventry University and an Honorary Reader at Imperial College London (2015-today). Alex previously worked as a Reader at Coventry University (2014-2016), Lecturer in Energy at The Open University (2012-2014), following an Intra European Marie Curie Fellow at NCSR Demokritos (2011-2012). As a research associate he worked on energy related materials from an experimental and theoretical perspective in Germany (University of Münster, 2008), the UK (Imperial College London, 2008-2010 and Cambridge University, 2010-2011) and as a visiting researcher at MIT (for a period in 2010 and 2013). Alex gained a PhD (Defect processes in germanium) from Imperial College London (2008) and an MSc in Theoretical Chemistry from Oxford University. His undergraduate studies in materials physics were at Imperial College London. Alex is the author of more than 200 research papers and 3 chapters in energy and electronic materials.

 

Vision Statement

I am a driven and ambitious materials physicist with a belief that my research can greatly improve the design of energy materials. My overall research goal is to investigate energy related materials using advanced modelling techniques in synergy with experiment. I aim to gain a deeper understanding of the properties of these materials and to optimise them via defect engineering at the atomic scale. My research focus is on materials for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), batteries and nanoelectronic materials. In the long term, I wish to investigate materials for hydrogen production, energy storage and nuclear materials.
