Dr. Nithyadharseni Palaniyandy
|Dr. Nithyadharseni Palaniyandy is currently working as a Senior Researcher at Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), South Africa. She obtained her Ph.D. from India (2012), in the broad field of physics, which includes materials science and electrochemistry, on “nanostructured battery materials for all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries”. Her main research interests are developing and optimizing advanced electrode materials for energy storage applications such as secondary-ion batteries (Lithium-, Sodium- and Zinc-ion batteries) and super capacitors including novel methods of synthesis, characterization and evaluation of the electrochemical properties in half/full-cell assemblies.
She has published more than 35 articles in various international journals and presented in 30 national/international conferences. She has h-index; 18 and around 950 citations. She is co-supervising and mentoring Masters and Ph.D. students on the area of lithium-ion batteries, super-capacitors and fuel-cells.
