Professor Maria Forsyth is a world leader in developing advanced materials for a range of energy and infrastructure technologies. Her group discovered a large new family of organic ionic "plastic" materials which are being used in advanced energy storage technologies. Maria has also developed significant understanding of charge transport at the interfaces between metals and electrolytes, and within other novel electrolyte materials. This has prompted the design of new materials for fuel cells, battery designs and technologies to prevent corrosion.
