Lixin Qiao obtained his Bachelor Degree in Applied Chemistry at Qingdao University of Science and Technology (China) in 2015. Then, he became a jointed master student in Organic Chemistry between Qingdao University of Science and Technology (China, Prof. Xinhong Zhou) and Qingdao Institute of Bioprocess and Bioenergy Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (China, Prof. Guanglei Cui). The research was focused on synthesizing novel lithium borate salts and preparing polymer electrolytes for lithium batteries. In 2018, he joined CIC energiGUNE as PhD student in polymer electrolyte research line, aiming at developing innovative alkali metal salts and polymer electrolytes for next-generation batteries.
