Sergey Luchkin

Professor: Keith Stevenson

Sergey graduated from National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) in 2009. Then he investigated high-temperature superconductors HTSC-2G in the Research Institute of Inorganic Materials in Russia. In 2012, he joined the Marie Curie project NANOMOTION in University of Aveiro, Portugal, where he studied the application of methods based on Scanning Probe Microscopy for Li-ion battery. In 2015, he received a PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Aveiro.
