Dr Alexey M. Glushenkov is a joint appointment between Research School of Chemistry and Research School of Engineering at ANU. He is a part of Battery Storage and Grid Integration program and is a Research Leader in Battery Materials within this initiative.  

Dr Glushenkov received his Master of Physics degree from Novosibirsk State University in Russia in 2003 and his PhD degree (physics, electronic materials engineering) from the Australian National University in 2009. He had research appointments at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Russia), Australian National University, Deakin University, Melbourne Centre of Nanofabrication, the University of Melbourne (all - Australia) as well as Drexel University (the US).  Dr Glushenkov’s research interests are centred on electrochemical energy storage in metal-ion batteries, electrochemical supercapacitors and hybrid metal-ion capacitors as well as materials that enable these energy storage cells. Previously, he was a winner of 2014 Vice-chancellor’s Award for Research Excellence at Deakin University (early career researcher) and was a 2017 Emerging Investigator of Journal of Materials Chemistry A. Since 2016 Dr Glushenkov serves as an associate editor of RSC Advances (Royal Society of Chemistry, the UK).
