Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

Background

I started on my 5 year master's degree in nanotechnology at NTNU in the fall of 2012. In my third year I chose to specialize in nanotechnology for materials, energy and the environment. The fourth year of my studies I spent abroad at UC Berkeley, California, where I was enrolled in the department of Materials Science and Engineering. After my return from the US, I started my master thesis on ab initio finite temperature simulations of the lattice thermal conductivity of XNiBi, X=(Sc, Y, La), -based half-Heuslers. I performed DFT simulations in combination with the TDEP method, utilizing molecular dynamics. I finished my master's degree in the spring of 2017.

Research

Currently I am a PhD candidate. My field of research is lithium-air batteries.
