About Us

Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group is comprised of a truly diverse and multi-disciplinary group of 34 faculty, staff, and student researchers with specialities in chemistry, biology, maths, materials, and engineering. Leading the way are Prof. Patrick Unwin and Prof. Julie Macpherson, who have both received numerous awards for their excellence in research and teaching. Substantial industrial interactions have arisen due to the reputation of the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group for developing innovative approaches which provide new insights into complex (heterogeneous) systems relevant to industry.
