Dr Mi Tian



Lecturer in Low Carbon Engineering

Research interests and expertise in Hydrogen Energy, Sustainable Fabrication of Nanoporous Composites, and Neutron Scattering Characterisation technique.

The major research interests include:

•    Green synthesis of nanoporous materials, including porous polymer, porous carbon and MOFs.

•    Neutron scattering for characterisation of hydrogen materials. 

•    Hydrogen storage and transportation.

•    Hydrogen and deuterium separation.


Mi Tian significantly contributes to the development of porous polymer composite for on-board hydrogen system, which has a direct impact on light-weighted vehicle and low carbon economy. She has been leading the research on neutron scattering technique for hydrogen energy materials, which provides the fundamental properties of hydrogen and hence leads to novel hydrogen material design.


Mi received the Ede & Ravenscroft Prize in 2019. She is a full member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and member of the IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers). She was awarded WES Top 50 Women in Engineering (WE50) 2020.
