Oxford Martin Fellow, Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy

Senior Research Fellow

Dr Ryan Bayliss is a senior research fellow in the Department of Materials, and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy.

His research aims to develop new materials, often through the exploration of inorganic crystal structures and the engineering of defects in solids, that underpin next generation energy storage devices. His research efforts within the Oxford Martin School attempt to understand the potential technological developments possible (energy density, power density, cost, lifetime, etc) in the energy storage sector and in collaboration with colleagues, attempt to understand the value of these various energy storage devices.

Ryan has a Bachelors and Master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Birmingham and a PhD from Imperial College London in materials science. After a short postdoctoral research role at Imperial College London, he moved to the United States to work as a member of the multi-valent thrust of the US Department of Energy battery hub, the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) based at Argonne National Laboratory before moving to his role at Oxford.
