Research Interests

Rohit has a background that includes materials/metallurgy/manufacturing and the use of electrochemical techniques (such as voltammetry and impedance spectroscopy) to study the electrochemical production of titanium alloys, from titanium oxide, via the FFC Cambridge Process (a molten salt process operating at 900C). This work included manufacturing apparatus and developing new test methodologies to assess the electrochemical reduction processes taking place. This background is ideally suited to other molten salt electrolysis and form the basis of the Groups research in molten salt metal recovery and molten salt batteries.

His background in electrochemical techniques is also suited to investigate the manufacturability of electrochemical devices. For the past five years he has worked in this area with particular focus around WMG's Energy Innovation Centre (£13m pounds - InnovateUK) and is developing research projects in this area.


Biography

Rohit joined the University of Warwick in 2008 from Imperial College London. His research expertise lies within improving the manufacturability of devices and technology through a combination of electrochemical techniques and materials/manufacturing knowledge.

At WMG, Rohit has collaborated extensively with industry and has worked with SMEs to address electrochemical based challenges to working with large automotive companies to characterise battery safety.
