David S. Hall is a Research Associate in the Department of Chemistry at Cambridge University and a Post-doctoral Research Associate of Hughes Hall Cambridge. He received a BSc (2010) with Honours Specialisation in Chemistry and Minor in Materials Science from Western University (London, Canada) and a PhD (2014) in Chemistry from the University of Ottawa. His doctoral research was performed as a visiting scientist at the National Research Council of Canada (Ottawa). He received an NSERC-CREATE fellowship for postdoctoral research at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada (2014-2016) where he researched electrolyte additives for lithium-ion batteries in collaboration with and with funding from 3M Canada. He then joined the Nuclear Waste Management Organization in Toronto (2016-2017), where he was the project manager of a portfolio of academic, government, and industrial corrosion research across Canada and regularly collaborated with several international partners. He was then a postdoctoral research associate at Dalhousie University (2017-2019) studying characterisation methods, fast-charging cell designs, and additive synthesis for lithium-ion batteries. He moved to Cambridge in 2019, where he is currently joint project lead for the Degradation fast-start project of the Faraday Institution. He has been a symposium organiser for international conferences, a delegate for a European Commission joint technology platform (IGD-TP JA11a), is a standing member of the Education Committee of the Electrochemical Society, and is on the ECS Summer Fellowship Sub-committee. He was the Lead Guest Editor for a special issue of Corrosion Engineering, Science and Technology (Taylor and Francis, Harwell UK). He has published >35 peer-reviewed journal articles with >1,000 citations, and is anĀ inventor on 3 patent applications.
