  • Energy Materials

About

In his role as an Industrial Scientist, Toby Bond works with academic and industrial clients to solve applied research problems using the CLS. He primarily conducts high-resolution microscopic scale x-ray imaging work, but he also has vast experience with energy and advanced materials. Toby’s broad range of expertise heightens collaboration between members of the Industry Services group and makes strong connections among multiple research sectors.

An analytical chemist by training, Toby focused on battery materials characterization for his Master’s of Analytical and Materials Chemistry at Dalhousie University. He is currently working towards his PhD through Dalhousie University, with a concentration on the application of synchrotron science to the improvement of Li ion batteries. Developing relationships with industrial clients and seeing the tangible effects of research motivate Toby’s drive for the continued application of synchrotron science.

After the Covid-19 pandemic, Toby is looking forward to participating in the return of live music as he is an avid musician, composer, and listener. In the meantime, he is kept busy with his two dogs and PhD research.
