Research Interest:

Svenja studied chemistry at the Ruhr-University in Bochum and specialized herself in functional materials. She did an apprenticeship as a chemical lab assistant at the Max-Planck Institute for bioinorganic chemistry (nowadays: chemical energy conversion) in Mülheim an der Ruhr. She focused on the conversion of renewable energies during her bachelor and master thesis. She was always interested in the conversion and storage of energy and will thus continue studying this topic during her doctoral research work, while specifically focusing on the investigation of storage performance in batteries. Moreover, Svenja believes the electrochemical Atomic Force Microscopy (EC-AFM) is in this regard a powerful and promising tool. Various processes at the materials surface can be investigated „in-operando“ by the AFM with high spatial resolution at the anodes of the batteries. Svenja likes to travel, to cook and doing different kind of sports during her spare time.
