Dr Georgios Nikiforidis profile picture
  • Associate Lecturer (Teaching)
  • Institute for Materials Discovery
  • MAPS Faculty Office
  • Faculty of Maths & Physical Sciences

With a solid background in chemical engineering, physical chemistry, and materials science, I specialize in the design, synthesis, and characterization of materials and electrolytes for energy storage devices. Twelve years of research experience have granted me detailed technical knowledge and expertise in high and low-temperature electrochemical cells, spanning from redox flow batteries, photo-assisted flow cells, supercapacitors, aqueous and non-aqueous metal batteries, biofuel cells, and electrochemical water-splitting devices. I have worked and collaborated in several institutions and universities around the globe leading to 38 publications and 1 book chapter. Highly motivated, I pursued further education in Economics and Finance, which have provided me with a well-rounded understanding of the energy storage market. This makes me a versatile candidate with a unique outlook on the energy storage industry.
