Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Ulrich S. Schubert
Research topic: Micelles of redox-active amphiphilic diblock copolymers for water-based pRFBs

I am Alessandro Michieletto and I come from Italy. I studied Materials Science in Padua, both Bachelor and Master, and I graduated with a thesis on electrochemically mediated atomic transfer radical polymerization (eATRP) in aqueous solvent. Later I worked as a research fellow in the electrochemical characterization of C3N4-based materials.

In July 2020, I joined the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany, with the goal of developing polymeric micelles of redox active materials for polymeric redox flow batteries. This international and interdisciplinary project is an exciting challenge and fits well with the skills I have developed. I am looking forward to working in the Schubert Group.

In my free time I enjoy reading books, especially science fiction and fantasy, and I have a passion for history.
