Prof. Peter Bruce International

Peter Bruce’s research interests embrace materials chemistry and electrochemistry, especially lithium and sodium batteries. Recent efforts have focused on the synthesis and understanding of new materials for lithium-ion batteries, on understanding anomalous oxygen redox processes in high capacity Li-ion cathodes, solid electrolytes and the all solid state battery, the challenges of the lithium-air battery and the influence of order on the ionic conductivity of polymer electrolytes. As a member of the Oxford Martin School, Peter provides leadership in energy storage. He is also Director of the UK SUPERGEN consortium, representing the research community in energy storage in the UK.

His research has been recognised by a number of awards and fellowships, including from the Royal Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the German Chemical Society and The Electrochemical Society. He was elected to the Royal Society (UK Academy of Sciences) in 2007 and the Royal Society of Edinburgh (Scottish Academy of Sciences) in 1994.

Peter Bruce  is a member of the Science Industry and Translation and Planning and Resources Committees of the Royal Society.

Peter has been a board member of the Israel National Research Center for Electrochemical Propulsion (INREP) since 2012.
