Dorthe B. Ravnsbæk obtained her PhD in nanotechnology at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Aarhus University in 2011. Her PhD work focused on synthesis and structural characterization of novel metal hydrides for hydrogen storage. In 2012 she became a post-doctoral affiliate at Department of Material Science and Engineering at MIT in the group of Prof. Yet-Ming Chiang. Here she worked on developing and utilizing novel operando diffraction techniques to investigate the phase transformation mechanism in Li-ion cathode materials.
During the winter 2014 she was appointed Assistant Professor at Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at University of Southern Denmark. The focus of her research group is development of electrode materials for novel types of batteries and gaining fundamental insights into relations between structure, composition and electrochemical performance.
