End of an internship – start of a career

Aisling Elmer joined PV3 Technologies earlier this year working on advanced battery materials – here are her thoughts as the Royal Society of Chemistry funded internship comes to a close.

“As a recent graduate from University of Bath with a Master’s degree in Natural Sciences and having just completed my final year project in electrochemistry, I was eager to remain in the field and make the most of the skills I had learned.

During the three months of my internship I have developed a range of skills in the synthesis of battery cathode materials, as well as having the opportunity to present my results to industrial and academic experts in the field, through one of our Innovate UK funded programmes. Exposure such as this is a huge benefit of working in a small company, and I am grateful for the responsibility I have been entrusted with in my short time here.

Joining the Innovation Team here at PV3 Technologies has challenged me to think outside the box in my approach to research, a skill which I am sure will prove invaluable throughout my career.

I look forward to future challenges and opportunities here at PV3 as I accept my new permanent role.”

PV3 Technologies’ CEO, Dr David Hodgson said “Aisling fitted in right from the start and we’re delighted she has agreed to join us permanently to work on battery materials and other projects to support our growing array of customers”
