Dr Ryan Bayliss is a senior research scientist at Corning Incorporated.
Prior to this appointment, Ryan was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Materials, and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy.
His research focused on the development of new materials, often through the exploration of inorganic crystal structures and the engineering of defects in solids, that underpin next generation energy storage devices. His research efforts within the Oxford Martin School attempted to understand the potential technological developments possible (energy density, power density, cost, lifetime, etc) in the energy storage sector and in collaboration with colleagues, attempted to understand the value of these various energy storage devices.
Ryan has a Bachelors and Master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Birmingham and a PhD from Imperial College London in materials science. After a short postdoctoral research role at Imperial College London, he moved to the United States to work as a member of the multi-valent thrust of the US Department of Energy battery hub, the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) based at Argonne National Laboratory before moving to his role at Oxford.
