Gavin White United Kingdom - London, England

Co-founder and CEO of About:Energy - a battery testing and modelling company which is building software solutions to simplify battery development. Our goal is to ensure products using batteries are built correctly which reduces waste and improves the lifetime of these systems. Key to this is making the solutions simple and affordable which we will do by centralising the most difficult testing and modelling.

I am a very passionate entrepreneur/engineer and my main motivation for studying a PhD was to start a company. Very fortunately I got to undertake a PhD with Prof. Greg Offer at Imperial College which focused on measuring the thermal properties of lithium-ion cells. During this we invented a new method for measuring thermal conductivity of cells which we patented. Towards the end of my PhD I joined forces with my co-founder Kieran who has deep expertise in electrochemical parameterisation to start About:Energy.

Close to my heart is education and giving fair and equal opportunity for all. I'm a STEM ambassador and I am very passionate about giving back to society.
