I am a chemist and did my Ph D in physical chemistry/ electrochemistry from IISc, Bangalore, India. The overall goal of my research was to understand ion transport mechanism in succinonitrile based soft matter plastic crystalline electrolytes in Li-ion battery. Besides these fundamental studies, I have worked on liquid electrolytes and ionic liquids useful for lithium battery application. Afterwards I have worked in Aarhus university on solid electrolytes. Now I have joined in DTU energy conversion as a postdoc. My current topic of research is to investigate novel electrolytes for Li-O2 battery in terms of both fundamental and application basis.
