AGNIESZKA MARTA WIZNER

Presentation

Agnieszka Wizner obtained her Engineer and Master of Science degree in Chemical Technology from Warsaw University of Technology in 2014 where she focused on the synthesis and characterization of high energy materials. In September 2014 she joined Erasmus Mundus Master Course “MESC” – Master for Energy Storage and Conversion. Within this two-year program she studied in Aix-Marseille Université (France), Warsaw University of Technology (Poland), Université de Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens (France) and her 6 months master thesis internship she did in CIC energiGUNE, focusing on research in nitridophosphates as positive electrode materials for Na-ion batteries. In October 2016 she re-joined CIC energiGUNE as a researcher PhD student in the area of Electrochemical Energy Storage, where she is conducting her thesis entitled “Design and synthesis of new insertion electrode materials for Li-ion and Na-ion batteries via Bond Valence Energy Landscape approach” under the supervision of Dr. Montse Casas-Cabanas and Dr. Marine Reynaud.
