Dr Tudela-Montes participates in UK-China Workshop on the Electrification of Road Transport
Ignacio Tudela-Montes attended the UK-China Workshop on the Electrification of Road Transport - WERT18 held in Tianjin (China) on the 17th-20th of December. The workshop, funded by the Newton Fund (British Council) and the National Natural Science foundation of China and organised by Tianjin University, Heriot-Watt University and Loughborough University, brought together China and UK researchers in different discipline areas to discuss the electric revolution for zero-emission road transport in response to the challenges pressed on the automotive industries to deliver zero-emission road transport technologies
As part of the workshop activities, Ignacio gave a presentation titled "Electrochemical Engineering for Road Transport: A land of challenges... and opportunities". He also participated as an expert panellist in a open discussion session about prospects of internal combustion engines, batteries and fuel cells in road transport.

Davide Masiello presents at the 71st Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics
Davide Masiello, PhD student working with Dr Prashant Valluri and
Dr Ignacio Tudela-Montes on low-frequency bubble dynamics, has presented part of his PhD research at 71st Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics held in Atlanta (USA) on the 18-20 November. His presentation, titled "Dynamics of a single gas bubble under forced acoustic oscillations of very low frequency", theoretically explores whether cavitation at lower frequencies (<20 kHz) can induce chemical reactions.

2019 Butler meeting to take place in Edinburgh
During Electrochem 2018 conference held at Lancaster University, it was confirmed that the Royal Society of Chemistry's 2019 Scotland and North of England Electrochemistry Symposium, also known as the Butler Meeting, will be held at The University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings. The meeting, organised by Dr Tudela-Montes and other members of both School of Engineering and School of Chemistry, will has take place in Spring 2019. The one-day symposium, sponsored by the RSC's Electrochemistry Group, will enable PhD students and PDRAs from across Scotland and the North of England to meet with their peers and present their research in any field related to Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry. More news related to this event will be announced soon.
