Power and Energy Chapter Webinar | From Academia to Industry – A Conversation With Ian Wilkinson From Siemens Energy


We look forward to learning about Ian’s experiences and insights on his career path from academia to industry in the UK and what it means to work during and toward the energy transition.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A and a discussion on how current graduate and postgraduate students and other early-career engineers or researchers can be part of that transition – potentially with Siemens Energy.

Chair: Dr Ludmilla Steier, Associate Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Oxford.

Organisers: ECRs Supergen Energy Storage Network+ committee.

About the Speaker

Dr Ian Wilkinson is part of Siemens Energy’s UK decarbonisation team, with a particular interest in the use of hydrogen and hydrogen carriers such as ammonia in decarbonising energy systems at nation scales. He graduated with a PhD in Physics from Bristol University and later completed an MBA at Oxford Brookes University.

He has worked in the R&D of superconducting magnets used in MRI scanner technology at Siemens Magnet Technology. Also at Siemens, he has led the team that designed and built the Green Ammonia energy storage system demonstrator at a test site at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

His current focus is on commercial ventures establishing and scaling UK’s green hydrogen economy.
