Welcome!

Matt Lacey

My name is Matt, I'm from the county of Hampshire in the south of England, and now living in Uppsala, Sweden.

I currently work as a development engineer at Scania Materials Technology, where I work in a range of different projects relating to the chemistry of electric vehicle batteries.

Prior to joining the automotive industry, I spent over ten years in academic science, completing my PhD at the University of Southampton in 2012, and then almost 7 years at the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre at Uppsala University, first as a postdoc and then a permanent member of staff.

On this website I maintain, among other things, educational resources relating to battery chemistry and electrochemistry: you can read more about this on my Science page. I run these pages in a purely personal capacity, and opinions expressed or material presented within are mine only. My intention is to continue to maintain and expand the educational resources on these pages for the benefit of the scientific community and any interested members of the general public.

In my spare time, I like to dabble in photography, and a part of this website is devoted to galleries for the benefit of friends, family and any other interested visitors.
