Liam Johnson completed his MSci in Natural Sciences at Lancaster University, UK in 2017. A degree heavily focused on Chemistry, Materials Science, and Mathematics, his final year research project revolved around the production of an azobenzene liquid crystal polymer for use as a solar thermal fuel. His research experience during his degree also included work on supercapacitor electrodes and computational modeling of photo-switchable molecules for STF applications. Prior to joining CIC energiGUNE, he worked in the R&D department of a global manufacturer of construction materials, developing bio-based adhesives to produce a variety of wood-based materials such as plywood and chip board.
Liam Johnson is currently working at CIC energiGUNE as a pre-doctoral researcher in the Interfacial phenomena, colloids and porous media group in the Thermal Storage area.
