We are proud to announce 6 new PhDs and researchers in the center! These clever, young and aspiring persons will make sure MoZEES is producing high quality and high impact research in the forthcoming years.

Dr Einar Vøllestad is a researcher at the University of Oslo. Einar will devote the next couple of years to MoZEES, and in collaboration with prof. Truls Norby he will be exploring the properties of non-porous, protonic conducting composite membranes for use in PEM fuel cells and electrolyzers.

MSc. Eivind Hugaas‘ project at NTNU focuses on hydrogen storage tanks, and he will be studying fatigue data via experimental testing and modelling, in close collaboration with the Norwegian industrial partner Hexagon. Eivind’s supervisor is prof. Andreas Echtermeyer.

MSc. Daniel Tevik Rogstad embarks on his PhD studies at NTNU this fall, with prof. Ann Mari Svensson as his supervisor. Daniel will be investigating Silicon anodes and ionic liquids in Lithium-ion batteries.

MSc. Elise Ramleth Østli is starting her PhD studies at NTNU these days, with RA1 manager Prof. Fride Vullum Bruer as supervisor. She will be aiming at the development of water-based manufacturing routes for electrodes in an effort to stabilize the electrode/electrolyte interface.

MSc. Ika Dewi Wijayanti joined MoZEES as a PhD student at NTNU and IFE from 1 January 2017 and is working on Nickel metal hydride batteries. The study is undertaken in collaboration with our international industrial partner BASF-Ovonic, aiming to develop high voltage and high power non-aqueous metal hydride batteries.

MSc. Mathias Henriksen is embarking on his PhD studies at USN these days, focusing on hazards – such as explosions – related to accidents with Li-ion batteries in transportation. The work will be supervised by prof. Dag Bjerketvedt and conducted in close collaboration with FFI.
