Dr Alexey Glushenkov is a Research Fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne. He received his PhD degree from the Australian National University in 2009 and his prior Master of Physics degree from Novosibirsk State University (Russian Federation) in 2003. Dr Glushenkov has previously had positions at the Australian National University, Deakin Univiersity (Australia) and Drexel University (the USA). His research interests focus on inorganic and carbon nanomaterials, their characterisation (in particular, by methods of electron microscopy) and applications in energy storage and conversion.
