Ashley Fly received an MEng degree in Automotive Engineering from Loughborough University in 2011, followed by a PhD in the thermal management of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2015.
He then worked as a research associate on a joint project between the United Kingdom and South Korea for advanced fuel cell technology. He is now a lecturer in vehicle electrification at Loughborough University.
Fly's research interests focus on developing the technologies required for low emission and emission free vehicles, including hybrid, battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
He is currently researching the modelling, manufacture, testing and analysis of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC). He also studies batteries, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), fluid flow and heat transfer in electrochemical devices, system-level analysis and integration and evaporative cooling.
