Daniel Brandell is professor at Uppsala University, Sweden.
He received his PhD in 2005 at Uppsala University (Sweden) on a thesis comprising Molecular Dynamics studies of polymer electrolytes for Li-ion batteries. After post-doctoral studies at Tartu University (Estonia) and Virginia Tech (USA) studying electrolyte systems for actuators and fuel cells using MD techniques, he returned to Uppsala University where he was appointed Professor in Materials in 2016. He holds several research grants, including an ERC consolidator grant from 2017, and has many collaboration projects with academia and industry.
Since then, Daniel Brandell and his team expanded the core expertise from numerous theoretical methods to experimental work, with a clear focus on Li-ion batteries and other ‘future’ battery chemistries such as Na-ion batteries, solid-state systems, Li-Sulfur, polymer electrolytes, organic batteries, etc., to understand processes at interfaces, ageing effects and similar. He has organized two main international conferences in these areas: the International Symposium on Polymer Electrolytes XV (Uppsala, 2016) and the Organic Battery Days (Uppsala, 2017).
Daniel Brandell currently supervises >10 PhD students at Uppsala University, and has published more than 150 publications (H-index 31 SCOPUS 06/2020)).
