Personal data

Short description
I am currently head of the "Research Center for Applied Battery Technology, FAB-SH" at the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology (ISIT). For more than 20 years I have been working on the development of advanced battery technologies, especially in the areas of cell manufacturing, system integration and characterization. After completing my chemistry studies, I received my PhD in 2005 from the PSI of ETH Zurich with a thesis on the characterization of electrodes for lithium-ion batteries. Since 2006, I have been working at the Fraunhofer Institute ISIT on the development of custom lithium battery cells and their adaptation to a wide variety of applications. My current research focuses on new high performance batteries, solvent-free manufacturing processes, new separator concepts and new cell monitoring technologies. I hold 2 patents and have published more than 20 papers.
