Ousmane Camara earned his Master Degree in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology from the Polytechnic University of Milan in September 2017. He carried out his master thesis at Holst Centre in Eindhoven, working on the synthesis and characterization of all-solid-state Li-ion batteries for one year.
In September 2020 he joined the ETN-POLYSTORAGE training network as Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in a position divided between POLYMAT (San Sebastián) and IMDEA Energy. He works under the supervision of Prof. David Mecerreyes and Dr. Rebeca Marcilla. The main objective of his PhD is the development of redox active colloids/suspensions for semi-solid redox flow batteries. This project will include the synthesis of redox-active polymer nanoparticles, their electrochemical characterization, the preparation of conductive suspensions and the investigation of semi-solid redox flow batteries using redox active materials with different redox potentials.
