Dr Hannah King joined SEAM is an Associate Researcher with SEAM. Hannah is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on a research project in partnership with industry partner Lightning Protection International (LPI) and the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC) to develop the next-generation of air terminals (also known as lightning protection devices). Hannah will assist in the development of novel materials for LPI’s lightning protection devices that focus on the minimisation of corona discharge.
Hannah completed a Bachelor of Science (majors of chemistry and mathematics) from James Cook University (Townsville), in 2014 with first class honours. She earned an Australian Postgraduate Award and began her doctoral degree at James Cook University studying the effect of disorder on the activity of low-cost water oxidation catalysts. Hannah relocated to Swinburne in 2017 to complete her thesis. Following conferral of her doctoral degree in 2020, Hannah commenced the postdoctoral research position studying novel materials for lightning protection devices (known as “air terminals”).
