Dr. Gebrekidan Gebresilassie Eshetu earned his Multiple MSc degrees in Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion) from Picardie Jules Verne University (France), Paul Sabatier University (France), Warsaw University of technology (Poland), University of Cordoba (Spain) and University of Marseille (France) under the Erasmus Mundus (EU) programme. He also spent 8 months with Prof. Thierry Brousse at the Polytech of Nantes (Materials Engineering laboratory) for his Master thesis working on the investigation of MnO2 and Co3O4 based nanocomposite materials for electrochemical capacitors. He obtained his Ph.D. in Materials Science in 2013, working with Prof. Stephane Laruelle, Prof. Michel Armand, Dr Sylvie Grugeon and Dr Guy Marlair at the LRCS laboratory and INERIS research institute (France). The research was focused on the fundamental study of the electrode/electrolyte interphases, Electrolytes and additives in LIBs.

After his Ph.D, he did a 2 1/2 years postdoctoral research at the Helmholtz Institute of Ulm (HIU) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany in the group of Prof. Stefano Passerini, where his research work was mainly focused on the fundamental investigation of interfaces/interphases in Li- and Na-based rechargeable batteries, additives and electrolytes, including ionic Liquids.

Since February 2017, he is a postdoctoral researcher at CIC EnergiGUNE, where he joined the group of solid polymer electrolytes and Li-S batteries. His main research interest includes investigation of the passivation layer in metal based Li-and Na-rechargeable batteries, additives, development and optimization of electrolytes (polymer electrolytes, ionic liquids etc.).
