At IDTechEx, Lorenzo's activities revolve around energy storage for electric vehicles and consumer electronics. He focuses on lithium-ion, sodium-ion, lithium-sulphur, lithium-air, solid-state and supercapacitors.
Lorenzo holds a PhD magna cum laude in Physical Chemistry from the University of Münster in Germany, which he carried out at the MEET Battery Research Centre and at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. During his doctoral studies, he focused on advanced anodes and electrolytes for post-lithium-ion batteries, as well as thermal sensors for Li-ion batteries.
Prior to that, he obtained his MPhil in Micro- and Nanotechnology Enterprise from the University of Cambridge and his BSc in Industrial Chemistry from the University of Rome. He has worked on graphene-based materials at the Nokia Research Centre in Cambridge (UK) and has been a visiting scholar at the University of Aveiro in Portugal and at the Italian National Agency for New Technologies and Energy in Rome.
With an h-index of 5, his extensive experience on energy storage has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 5 of which as first author, and one book chapter. Lorenzo is also an alumnus of ELEEP, a US-EU network of ca. 100 experts in energy and environmental policy.
