What do you like about science?

For me science is curiosity, I like to find out how things work, I always had and still have a billion questions about everything, and science gives answers.

If you have not become a scientist, what would you be today?

I think I would be a winemaker or maybe a cook

What is your favorite place at work? Outside work?

My favorite place at work is the lab, outside work it is probably my kitchen, another kind of lab.

What is your role in the SUBLIME project?

My role in SUBLIME is mainly focused on cell aging testing.

How do you think will the results of SUBLIME contribute to a more sustainable world? How will the world be different after SUBLIME?

SUBLIME should result in safer and more performant lithium based batteries which are indispensable from our day to day life (cellphone, laptops,…) to much larger grid applications (integration and storage from renewable sources) without forgetting of course the automotive industry.

What research are you conducting at your institution and how is it applied in the SUBLIME project?

My research is focused on polymer based quasi solid state batteries, which are somehow different from the technology developed in SUBLIME. The conjunction point is indeed the testing techniques and characterization which are quite similar and provide crucial data towards the optimization of the different chemistries.
