Dr Denis Kramer is Associate Professor within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Denis Kramer graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. (FH) from the University of Applied Sciences Zwickau (Germany) in 2002. He was awarded a PhD in mechanical engineering (summa cum laude) from the Technical University in Freiberg (Germany) in 2007 for his work on "Mass transport aspects of Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells under Two-Phase Flow Conditions" carried out at the Electrochemistry Laboratory of the Paul Scherrer Institut (Switzerland). Being awarded a Fellowship of the German Academic Exchange Service, he spend two years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) studying Li-Ion batteries based on Density-Functional-Theory. He relocated to the UK in 2009 after taking up a position as Researcher Co-Investigator at Imperial College London to study the properties of Core-Shell nano-particles as catalysts for low temperature fuel cells in an collaborative effort seeking to combine Density-Functional-Theory with advanced experimental characterisation. He joined the School of Engineering Sciences in 2010 as a lecturer and is currently on sabbatical at Imperial College London.

Research interests

His research interests focus on electrochemical energy conversion technologies such as fuel cells and batteries. He mainly works at the interface between theory and experiment, combining state-of-the-art computational materials design (based on DFT) with advanced electrochemical characterisation and synthesis techniques to discover technology-enabling materials for these devices. His current interests include the electrochemistry of oxide surfaces, the thermodynamics of binary nano-particles, and phase stability of multi-component systems in aqueous environments.
