After completing his Master thesis in the Electrochemistry Laboratory at Paul Scherrer Institute on cathode materials for Na-ion batteries, Simon joined the Energy Economics Group in August 2017. He is currently pursuing his PhD studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ) working on a joint project between the Electrochemistry Laboratory and the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis at PSI. A first part of his PhD research includes the assessment of performance, costs, and environmental impacts of Li-ion and Na-ion battery cells using physics-based and techno-economic models. Simon is currently working on dispatch optimization of energy storage assets in order to assess the suitability of rechargeable batteries deployed in different stationary applications.

2017 MSc in Chemistry at ETH Zurich. Master thesis on cathode materials for Na-ion batteries.
2015 BSc in Chemistry at the University of Berne.
