Energy conversion and storage is a global challenge due to ever increasing energy consumption. In energy storage, lithium-ion battery is the current dominant technology, but it presents several technical limitations, as well as a dependence on a few Lithium producer countries. Nanofibers produced by electrospinning are highly promising when it comes to research the feasibility of heterogeneous systems for energy conversion and storage. Electro-catalysis, and post lithium batteries –mainly sodium ion batteries and potassium ion batteries–, are some of the exciting alternatives that electrospinning may contribute to develop and scale up.

About the speaker

Dr. Sana Ullah, research fellow at Institute of Inorganic Chemistry I, and Post Lithium Storage Cluster of Excellence (POLiS), Ulm University, Germany.  He is working in the research group of Dr. Montaha Anjass.

His area of research is “electrospun functional polymeric nanofibers for energy conversion & storage”. He has published 45+ research articles in well reputed & peer-reviewed international journals covering research area of electrospun nanofibers for functional applications. He earned “Best Academic Achievement Award” from Shinshu University for the period of 2018-2023.

About University of Ulm

Ulm University (German: Universität Ulm) is a public university in Ulm, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The University was founded in 1967 and focuses on natural sciences, medicine, engineering sciences, mathematics, economics, and computer science. It is one of the youngest public universities in Germany. The campus of the university is located north of the city on a hill called Oberer Eselsberg, while the university hospital has additional sites across the city.
