PhD Title: Hydrogen Storage: Encapsulation of gas using nanoporous materials
Jia Ming is a graduate from The University of Melbourne with a master’s degree in chemical engineering. Her research work focuses on hydrogen storage through encapsulation of high-pressure gas within the pores of nanoporous materials. Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier in substituting the role of fossil fuels in future energy systems. However, it is not widely used now because of its very low volumetric density posing a challenge to its storage and transportation. Her research aims to alleviate the need for high pressure vessels and extreme low temperature conditions to store hydrogen, ultimately to allow for safe handling in a more energy efficient way.
