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.
I think I would be a winemaker or maybe a cook
My favorite place at work is the lab, outside work it is probably my kitchen, another kind of lab.
My role in SUBLIME is mainly focused on cell aging testing.
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.
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.
