Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Deepak Pratap Singh


Deepak received his PhD in 2014 from the Reactor Institute Delft at the Delft University of Technology, where he worked on High Performance Batteries (Li- Ion, Li-Sulfur, Na-Ion) that includes probing lithium dynamics in high voltage battery materials, in-situ electrochemistry, tailoring electrode architecture for optimized ionic and electronic transport. In 2015, he made it to finals of Dutch CleanTech Challenge and later have received support from the Yes Delft and the Climate-KIC Accelerator programs for developing low cost energy storage systems. Currently, as a post-doctoral researcher at Inorganic Material Science group he is focus on synthesis and tuning of fast ionic conductors for all solid-state battery, interface engineering, in-situ studies using Neutron and X rays techniques.
