Member of Technical Advisory Board
Andrea will advise InoBat on the research and development of future generation batteries and other energy systems with the focus on stable and safe performance.
Andrea Strakova Fedorkova is an associate professor at Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice. Her research interests are focused on electrode materials for Li-ion batteries, nanocomposites, their preparation and study of the redox properties, structural characteristics, stability, safety and environmental compatibility.
She is the author of 32 CC publications with citation response of 320 SCI citations. She is laureate of the Award of the President of Slovak Republic Ivan Gašparovič Students´ personality of Slovakia 2010 – The best student in Slovak Republic, laureate of L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award 2018 Slovakia and IUPAC Award representing Platinum in the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists.
Andrea leads the international NATO SPS project „Development of New Cathodes for Stable and Safer Lithium-Sulphur Batteries “. The objective of this project is to investigate the fundamental chemistry of sulfur composites and lithium polysulfides and develop new functional electrode materials and architectures for high energy, low cost Li-S batteries. She is co-inventor of two EU patents on Li-S batteries.
She also works as reviewer for several international journals and projects as H2020, Eureka or M-era.net. and she is the organizer of International conference NFA Nanomaterials: Fundamentals and Applications. She received a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry (2010) and habilitation in physical chemistry (2016) from the Comenius University in Bratislava.
