Congratulations to our alumni Dr. Simon Fleischmann (PhD 2018) for winning the 2020 YESS Award to carry out research to investigate the transition from Faradaic to non-Faradaic energy storage (RS2E French Research Network on Electrochemical Energy Storage) and Dr. Pattarachai Srimuk (PhD 2019) for winning the 2020 UMSICHT Award (Fraunhofer UMSICHT) and the Leibniz Dissertation Award (Leibniz Association) for work on desalination batteries.
Welcome to our team! Fabian Schmitt will support our research activities related to environmentally friendly energy storage technologies. Florian is enrolled at the materials science and engineering bachelor program ATLANTIS, which is a binational program between Saarland University and the Oregon State University.
Welcome to our team! Dr. habil. David Aradilla has obtained his PhD from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the Barcelona Research Center in Multiscale Science and Engineering in 2013. Among others, he worked at the CEA Grenoble (2013-2018) and the Georg August Universität Göttingen (2018-2020). Among others, he is an expert in electrochemistry, electrode materials, and energy storage technologies. He will enrich our team’s expertise and contribute towards the development of new generations of electrochemical energy storage devices.
Welcome to our team! Marie Besch and Lola Bieber are enrolled in the EEIGM program, an international (European) Master program. Marie will be supporting our research activities related to MXene and Lola will work on electrodes for selective ion recovery.
Welcome new student intern Behnoosh Bornamehr (from Saarland University) and scientist Tamara Winter (from TU Darmstadt)! Behnoosh is working on advanced electrode materials and Tamara will enhance our research on soft electrode technology.
Welcome to our new technician, Ms. Zeyu Fu, who is joining our team.
Srimuk Pattarachai was selected to attend the 2020 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (postponed to 2021 because of Covid-19) as a Fellow. He was selected as one of only 650 total attendees, selected from a highly competitive global call.
