Shaikshavali Petnikota
My primary area of research is electrochemical energy storage. I’m a materials scientist with extensive hands-on experience in materials synthesis and characterization for batteries and supercapacitors. My academic and postdoctoral studies with a strong applied electrochemistry background enable me to carry out independent research regarding new electrode materials for energy storage devices like Li, Na, Mg, Al-ion batteries, supercapacitors, etc.
