Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Robert Dominko
Research topic: High-resolution morphological characterisation and 3D imaging of self-assembly polymer electrolytes and copolymer micellisation

I am Olivera Lužanin from Serbia. I had the pleasure of joining the Department of Materials Chemistry at the National Institute of Chemistry in Ljubljana in March 2020. At the moment, I’m working on the development and synthesis of hybrid organic polymers and their application in post-lithium-ion batteries.

I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in physical chemistry, which I obtained at the Faculty of Physical Chemistry, University of Belgrade.  My previous research experience includes work on nanostructured conjugated polymers and their application in fuel cells, and organic-based electrode materials for supercapacitors.

POLYSTORAGE offers a unique opportunity to be a part of the dynamic team and work on current problems related to energy storage with top-notch experts. These were the main reasons I was eager to take part in the project. Aside from being passionate about chemistry, I would say I’m a film enthusiast with a keen interest in cognitive psychology.
