Eleanor Roake

Eleanor graduated with an MEng in Materials Science and Engineering from Queen Mary, University of London in 2017. During her industrial placement at TE Connectivity she worked on the optimisation of an aluminium anodising process. For her Masters project she explored the potential application of copper tungstate (CuWO4 ) as a novel material for solar water splitting. Her research focused on creating a system with CuWO4 nanoparticles. Eleanor’s main area of interest is in sustainable materials and methods for hydrogen production. In her spare time Eleanor likes playing her saxophone, eating cheese, drinking wine and going to festivals. She also enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, skiing and kayaking.
