Research summary

Milon Miah is a Marie-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow within the Du Group at the Centre for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham. He has developed different graphene-based nanomaterials for electrochemical energy storage devices (Supercapacitor, batteries). Currently, his research focuses on the reduction of fuel crossover using the thin electrolyte membrane and highly active aligned electrodes in DEFCs.

  • Newton-Bhabha Ph.D. Fellow 2019
  • JSPS- HOPE Fellow 2018


Ph.D. in Physics, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, India, 2021

MSc in Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, 2014

BSc in Physics, University of Calcutta, India, 2012



Milon Miah received his BSc in Physics from the University of Calcutta, India, in 2012. He obtained his MSc in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, in 2014. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (Registration: Jadavpur University) in 2021 on electrochemical properties of Graphene-based Energy storage Materials. During his Ph.D. study, the main research topic was the charge transport and electrochemical properties of graphene-based energy storage materials. He has studied graphene-based materials to explain the high storage capacity in the materials and introduced the concept of trap states arising due to doping and edge states. He has been selected for the Newton–Bhabha fund to attend the Ph.D. placement program 2018-19 in the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering, Loughborough University, UK as a visiting research student.

In 2021, he joined the Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research at the University of Birmingham as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Research Fellow, starting his research in fuel cells.
