Freya Janina Müller

Dr. Freya Janina Müller
Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) IAM-ESS

After studying in chemistry at the University of Bremen, Dr Müller completed her doctoral thesis in analytical chemistry. The focus of this research consisted of the isolation and structure elucidation of natural products. After her PhD, she joined the KIT with a focus on batteries, where she works on the analysis of gases and electrolyte samples with regard to the analysis of electrolyte components and mechanisms of degradation processes in battery cells.

Murat Tutus

Dr.-Ing. Murat Tutus
Head of Department Membranes and Functional Films
Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP

Dr. Tutuş, heads up the Department of Membranes and Functional Films at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP. He collaborates with colleagues from the Potsdam Science Park, University and Max Planck institute. With his team of researchers, he is working to develop new recyclable membranes made of polymer compounds with unique properties and using non-toxic solvents, which are advancing sustainability goals for a range of membrane and separator applications.
