Jude Majasan


Jude hails from Oka-Akoko, Ondo state, Nigeria. He had his primary and secondary education in Ilorin, Kwara state, Nigeria. He bagged a First Class degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Ilorin, Nigeria and had a one-year stint at ExxonMobil, Nigeria as an Engineering Materials Inspector/Handler before moving to Britain for Postgraduate studies in 2013.
He obtained his Masters' degree in Chemical Process Engineering at the University College London and worked on "Mathematical modelling and alternative reaction Path Synthesis for CO2 Utilization".
Having developed a huge interest in Electrochemistry and its Engineering application over his academic career, he opted for a research in the same area and joined the EIL in UCL in 2014 for PhD studies.

Research Summary

Project Title: Novel Diagnostic and accelerated testing techniques for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Water Electrolyzer Systems.

PEMWEs are typically used to produce hydrogen from renewable energy sources. This technology is promising as it offers the prospect of transforming zero-carbon power sources into the supply of zero-carbon hydrogen and oxygen for various end uses. However, high production cost and the need to improve efficiency remain the major drawbacks.

This research aims at developing diagnostic techniques to examine the internal workings of PEMWE cells. The range of diagnostic techniques will include optical flow visualization, CT X-Ray imaging, current and temperature mapping techniques and emerging 3-electrode systems in a bid to improve the performance and durability of the PEMWE technology to ensure a reduced production cost making it a more attractive recourse for storing intermittent renewable energy.
