Elisabetta is a Chemist Project Scientist in Robert Kostecki's group, working on understanding the chemical and physical phenomena happening at the interface between battery materials and electrolytes. She holds a Ph.D. in Physics from Trinity College Dublin and a Laurea Specialistica (equivalent to a Master) in Chemistry from the University of Sassari. Her research activities span from development of in-operando XPS methods to determine the role of interface phenomena on the device performances, in both in the field of lithium ion batteries, solar cells and PEC devices, to design and development of new semiconductors (oxides and nitrides) in collaboration with theoretical groups across Europe and the US.
