Tom completed his PhD in 2013 from UCL. Since 2013 Tom has led the engineering and manufacturing development of PCBFC™ at UCL as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, which included the role of technical lead of the £1.4M InnovateUK funded manufacturing project (101979). As a co-founder of Bramble Energy Tom joined the company as a director and Chief Technology Officer when the company spun-out of the universities in late 2016 before moving to CEO in September 2017.
Erik completed his PhD at UCL in 2017. During Erik’s time at UCL he raised over £15k to execute public engagement projects related to electrochemical technologies and was recognized by the IChemE and RAEng for his contributions. Erik brings experience in fuel cell stack and systems design and rapid prototyping expertise. He joined Bramble Energy as Head of Engineering in late 2016.
Vidal Completed his PhD in 2017 at UCL. Through a 2 year Teaching Fellowship in the department of Chemical Engineering at UCL and extensive public engagement activities, he gained experience in both supply chain management and the development and commissioning of hybridised portable fuel cell systems. Vidal joined Bramble as Head of Operations in mid 2017.
