SONA VALIYAVEETTIL

Presentation

Sona has obtained her Postgraduation in Physics from Pondicherry University (India) in 2013-15, accompanied with a research thesis based on ‘Cathode surface modifications for better performance of Lithium Sulfur batteries’. Later she joined as a lecturer in Physics at St. Joseph´s College Autonomous Devagiri, India (2015-16). During 2017-18 she worked as a research assistant in the project- ‘Solid State Batteries for Consumer Electronics & ELVs’ at Pondicherry University, organized by Government of India, Ministry of Heavy Industries and Applied Materials India Pvt Ltd. In 2018 Sona started her research career at CIC energiGUNE as a Predoctoral Researcher (PhD Student) and her thesis will be mainly focused on ‘Development of Composite Cathodes for All Solid-State Lithium Batteries’.
