Postdoctoral Fellows & Student Researchers
Dr. Theresa Schoetz
Theresa Schoetz received her PhD in Electrochemistry from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. She then joined the Centre for Electronics Frontiers (CEF) at the University of Southampton as a Postdoctoral Fellow and became the theme lead for Energy Technologies, starting her independent research on next-generation batteries beyond lithium-ion. Theresa received her Master of Science and Bachelor of Engineering in Electrochemistry and Chemical Engineering, respectively, in Germany. During her period of study, she completed an internship at the University of Salento in Italy and the Hokkaido University in Japan to research energy storage materials for aluminium batteries.
Her current research interests involve battery and capacitor materials and designs minimizing the trade-offs between performance, sustainability and safety for future energy storage technologies, including conductive polymers, ionic liquids and ionogels, nature-inspired and organic composite materials.
Dr. Seungmin Oh
Seungmin Oh is a PhD candidate who is going to graduate this summer, 2020 in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering at University of Texas at Austin. He earned a master degree in chemical engineering at University of Notre Dame. During his PhD and master’s studies, he has researched on the design and analysis of Ionic liquids (ILs) for electrochemical applications and CO2 capture applications. He has focused on not only the characterization of the local structures and the consequential transport properties of IL and IL based electrolytes, but also the surface chemistry between the electrode and the electrolyte using various spectroscopies.
