Jelena Popovic-Neuber is an Associate Professor in Battery Technology at the Department of Energy and Petroleum Engineering, Faculty of Science and Technology. She studied colloid chemistry at Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces/University of Potsdam, Germany (Dr. rer. nat., 2011) and chemical engineering at the University of Belgrade, Serbia (Dipl. ing., 2008). After graduation, she spent 11 years as a staff scientist/group leader at Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany. Her scientific interests  lie in the cross-section of experimental and theoretical electrochemistry and materials science, focusing on physicochemical investigation of ion conduction mechanisms in materials for electrochemical energy storage, mostly battery electrolytes, electrodes and interphases.
