Stefano Passerini is appointed Professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology to be a member of the Helmholtz Institute Ulm. After graduation at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1993, he has acquired a wide international experience in the lithium battery field as senior scientist in the USA (Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Dept., University of Minnesota) and Italy (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Environment), and as visiting scientist in Japan (Chemistry Dept., Waseda University), Brazil (Chemistry Dept., University of Sao Paulo in Riberao Preto). Finally, he was appointed as Professor in the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the University of Muenster (Germany) where he participated as co-Founder and co-Director to the establishment of MEET (Muenster Electrochemical Energy Technology), the battery research center focusing on the development of present and next generation lithium batteries and supercapacitors. Since 1986 Stefano Passerini has been working on the development of materials and systems for electrochemical energy storage. His research efforts are focused on the fundamental understanding and the development of materials for lithium batteries, such as ionic liquids, polymer electrolytes, and electrode materials. He is co-author of over 240 peer-reviewed publications, several book chapters and patents. In recognition of his work, he has been awarded the 2012 Research Award of the Battery Division of the Electrochemical Society. Since 2013 he has been appointed has European Editor of Journal of Power Sources.
