Dr Valeska Ting

BSciTech, PhD, AMIChemE

Lecturer in Chemical Engineering and Prize Fellow in Smart Nanomaterials


Dr Valeska Ting obtained her first degree in Advanced Materials from Victoria University of Wellington, NZ, before accepting a PhD scholarship at the Australian National University to conduct research into photocatalytic materials for solar hydrogen production. She took up a postdoctoral position at the University of Southampton, making valuable contributions to the development of methods for refining hydrogen positions in crystalline solids using neutron diffraction. She then sought out a postdoctoral research position at the University of Bath in 2010, where she worked with Dr Tim Mays on developing aspects of the experimental testing, modelling and evaluation of promising porous hydrogen storage materials.

She was awarded a Prize Research Fellowship in Smart Nanomaterials to conduct research into responsive materials for molecular containment at the University of Bath in 2012.


Valeska's research interests lie in the field of sustainable energies. She has extensive experience of a large range of experimental materials characterization techniques including X-ray and neutron diffraction, electron microscopy, thermogravimetric and spectroscopic analysis, gas sorption testing and physical properties testing. She has contributed to the design and development of equipment for in-situ neutron diffraction experiments as well as aiding in the development and testing of high pressure gas sorption apparatus.

Valeska is currently interested in exploring the possibility of enhancing the storage capacity of existing nanoporous hydrogen storage materials, creating materials for selective storage and sequestration of gases such as carbon dioxide and  investigating novel drug delivery methods through development of active nanoscale systems.
