Asier Fernandez De Añastro received his BS in chemistry from the University of the Basque Country in 2014 and the MS in New Material Science in 2015.

Asier started as a master student in the CIC energigune (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain) developing new polymer electrolytes for sodium batteries. Then he continued in the CIC energigune doing the master thesis. In 2015 he was awarded with the global training grant giving him the change to go to Melbourne (Australia) to continue his research.

Asier spent 6 months working in the Institute for Frontier Materials in the group of Maria Forsyth (Deakin University, Melbourne) developing ion gels for zinc batteries.


His research is focused in the development of new polymer electrolytes containing ionic liquids for lithium and sodium batteries.
