Manipulating Porous Matter
Santosh obtained his Ph.D. at the Technical University Dresden in Germany, with his thesis on "Anisotropic magnetic nanostructures prepared by surfactant-assisted ball milling”. He studied advanced functional materials for energy conversion and storage applications including nanostructured intermetallic, magnetocaloric, and open-framework-based ceramic materials. His recent research was focused on developing NASICON-type solid-electrolyte and nanocomposite electrode materials, and designing cell for Na-ion batteries. In Prof. Ameloot’s group, his research efforts will be devoted to the development of hybrid proton conducting materials and composites for efficient water electrolysis.
