Happy International Women’s Day

Antonia Bobitan photo at DESY Feb 2024We are so proud of our WomenInSTEM for their work with us at Finden.

We would like to feature Antonia Bobitan our PhD student who has just completed experiments for her Storming EU Project at the DESY synchrotron.

“We’ve been doing some pretty cool stuff here at DESY beamlines P21.2 and P07, from magnetic induction heating to in situ XRD-CT of batteries.

For the Storming EU Project, we (FINDEN LTD, UCL) have successfully performed in situ/operando XRD experiments of CH4 conversion to H2, demonstrating the power of the Fe-based catalysts made by University of Bologna (Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna)!

I’m a person that’s environmentally conscious so I figured this degree would also create some opportunities for me to be involved in the fight against climate change. And it has, especially with the PhD project, which is all about creating carbon-negative H2 in order to reduce our fossil fuel usage.”

Congratulations and keep up the hard work Antonia!

The project STORMING has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme, under Grant Agreement n° 101069690 and funded through the UKRI Horizon Europe guarantee scheme (Innovate UK project 10044059)
