Eve Wildman is a member of the Aberdeen Solid State Group (ASSG). Her research focus is on superior materials design for applications in electrochemical devices. Work from her PhD and subsequent EPSRC funded post-doctoral positions has led to the discovery of several new classes of materials that exhibit exceptional and unprecedented physical properties. These include novel fast ionic conductors and exotic magnetic and electronic phenomena (including colossal magnetoresistance and quantum insulating states). These materials are important for energy conversion devices, such as fuel cells, and spintronic applications.
Since her appointment as lecturer in 2019, Eve has been awarded a Carnegie Research Incentive Grant to conduct research in collaboration with ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility and Warwick University. The local structure of new ionic conductors is being investigated using neutron scattering experiments and solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR) in order to understand the complex conduction mechanisms involved and drive their application in future devices.
More recently, Wildman is leading a circular economy project with a local wastewater remediation company. 1bn litres of wastewater are produced annually in the local area from the whisky distillery industry and we are studying its role in a closed loop solution for end of life electric vehicle (EV) batteries.
As a CET Champion, Wildman aims to enhance the profile of the University of Aberdeen by continuing to collaborate with local and international industries and aims to tackle future challenges in the research areas of sustainable energy production and recycling.
