Hande Alptekin

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Hande is a Research Associate in the Department of Materials working on sodium nickel chloride battery systems. Hande's current project focuses on understanding the effect of changes to the cathode composition and structure on the overall cell performance characteristics.
Hande obtained her PhD in July 2021, working on developing high-performance electrode materials for Na-ion batteries and electrochemical characterisations using in-operando and ex-situ techniques at Imperial College London. She has been working on the charge storage mechanism, electrode structure-function relationship with the goal of novel Na-ion anode electrode discovery. She has been also examining the electrode interphase formations with various liquid electrolytes-electrode morphology combinations and investigating how the electrochemical performance, cyclic stability, and efficiency are influenced by the components of  solid electrolyte interphase.
