Early Stage Researcher
Nathiya Kalidas graduated with a Master of Science degree in Materials Science from PSG College of Technology, Anna University, India. Her research interests are in the field of materials science and electrochemistry, particularly in electrode materials for energy storage applications.
She joined the Pharmaceutical Physics group as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Vesa-Pekka Lehto. Her PhD research focuses on developing a high capacity silicon-based anode for advanced Lithium-ion batteries. Her work is around the use of micron-sized porous silicon particles as an anode material. she also working in the development of hybrid materials to enhance the electrochemical performance of silicon anodes.
