Kristian works on the lithium-O2 battery and has a keen interest in the interfacial challenges. His Ph.D., supervised by Senior Scientist Johan Hjelm at the Technical University of Denmark, focused on performance and lifetime limiting effects in alkali metal-O2 batteries using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Kristian received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from Aalborg University where his master thesis was conducted in conjunction with Akron University and focused on superhydrophobic polymeric membranes.

Srini is an inorganic electrochemist by training, and is currently studying high voltage degradation mechanisms of novel cathode materials in Lithium ion batteries. His PhD thesis at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Christopher E. D. Chidsey and co-advised by Prof. Robert M. Waymouth, focused on the design of molecular electrocatalysts for the selective reduction of CO2 to liquid fuels near the reversible potential. His Masters' thesis work with Prof. T. Pradeep at IIT Madras was focused on nanostructure growth in bacteria with hyperspectral imaging and electron microscopy.
