Speaker Biography (Anna Carlsson)
Anna Carlsson has a M Sc in Chemical Engieering from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden and a PhD in Chemistry and Fuel Cells from University of Ulm, Germany. Anna has worked 10 years with fuel cell development where she started to see the need for more environmentally friendly materials for electrochemistry. She cofounded Bright Day Graphene AB in 2017 together with Malin Alpsten in order to develop high performance environmentally friendly materials for energy storage. Anna is the CTO of the company and the inventor of the material.
Speaker Biography (Mamoun Taher)
While working as an advanced materials researcher, Dr Taher experienced firsthand the complex challenges often encountered in applications of graphene, particularly the tendency of the flakes to form back into many-layered graphite, dampening its unique properties. Driven to solve this issue, in 2017 he invented Aros Graphene®, a graphene hybrid which overcomes the agglomeration issue, retaining the powerful properties of graphene. Having discovered the key to industrial scale production of advanced graphene materials, he founded Graphmatech in 2017 as an adventure to turn his invention into business. Dr Taher is CEO and CTO, with a mission to take the world into the graphene age.
