ESR 14: Sameer Rodrigues


After living in Abu Dhabi, UAE for my entire life, I wanted to experience someplace different. So I moved to the Netherlands, where I did my bachelors in physics at the University of Groningen. I subsequently decided to remain in Groningen for a masters degree in nanoscience. For my thesis, I investigated the influence of different conductive additives for the cathodes of lithium-sulfur batteries. Wanting to continue working in the field of Energy storage, I have decided to pursue a PhD at imec, in the group of Prof. Philippe Vereecken, where I develop cathode coatings for lithium ion batteries using ALD/MLD.
