Dr. Carlos Ziebert earned his PhD in Physics from the Saarland University, Germany in 2002. Currently Dr. Ziebert is the head of the Calorimeter Center at IAM-AWP.
In the same year, he joined the KIT. He has more than 16 years of international R&D experience in thin film technology, modelling and thermal characterization of materials for energy systems and more than 60 peer-reviewed articles.
Since 2011, his research is focused on electrochemical and thermal characterization of Lithium-ion cells using calorimetry and safety testing. He has been leader in five projects related to electrochemical energy storage and from 2011-2013 he was the manager of the EERA Joint Programme on Energy Storage (JPES).
