Innovative materials for application in advanced supercapacitors
Nagaraj Patil pursued his master degree in Chemical Science at Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, Kolkata, India. His master thesis focused on development of Mueller matrix polarimetry for quantitave analysis of thermoresponsive hydrogels based on poly(ethylene oxide)s. Then he moved to University of Liege in 2013 for his Doctoral studies in Science, under the supervision of Prof. Christine Jerome. His thesis entitled “multifunctional polyelectrolytes bearing pendant catechol / quinone for energy and environmental applications” was a part of a prestogious European project, Renaissance ITN funded through FP7 Marie Cure Actions.
Since November 2017, Nagaraj holds a postdoctoral position in the group of Electrochemical Processes Unit at IMDEA energy institiute. His research interests focuses in the field of high performance organic and hybrid organic–inorganic electrochemcial energy storage, with special enforcement to emphasize on an integrated approach of synthetic polymer chemistry (redox-active polymers, intrinsically conducting polymers and conducting redox polymers) and applied electrochemical technologies (stationary and flow metal-ion batteries and capacitors).
