Martin Winter has been researching in the field of electrochemical energy storage and conversion for more than 20 years. He focuses on the development of new materials, components and cell designs for batteries and supercapacitors, in particular lithium-ion batteries. Martin Winter currently holds a profes-sorship for Applied Materials Science for Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion at the Institute of Physical Chemistry at Münster University, Germany. The full professorship developed from an en-dowed professorship funded by the companies Volkswagen, Evonik Industries and Rockwood Lithium from 2008 to 2012.
Furthermore, Martin Winter is the scientific head of the MEET Battery Research Center at Münster University. MEET stands for Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology. It combines outstanding equipment with an international team of about 140 scientists, engineers and technicians working on the research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices. Since January 2015 he is also director of the newly established Helmholtz Institute Münster (HI MS) “Ionics in Energy Storage”.
Martin Winter graduated from Münster University. After obtaining his Ph.D., he worked as Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland and later as University Assistant at the University of Technology (TU) in Graz, Austria. Martin Winter then held a full professorship at the Institute of Chemical Technology of Inorganic Materials at the TU Graz.
