Dr. Dominika Ziółkowska

Portrait of Dr. Ziółkowska I am a motivated and passionate researcher in the field of material science and solid-state chemistry. My expertise includes the processing and modification of solid-state materials, their characterization using advanced characterization tools, and electrochemical characterization. I am excited about the research and development of energy storage and conversion materials for science and industry. My dream is to be a part of scientific discoveries and bring them into an industrial reality.

I recently started a new exciting journey as a project manager of the scientific project on the development of all-solid-state batteries through the HOMING Programme supported by the Foundation for Polish Science.

I am currently looking for team members for this project.
