Louis started at V.O. in 2021, after obtaining his PhD in bioscience engineering at the KU Leuven. He specialized in Li-ion battery technology in his doctoral research. During his education he worked at Columbia University in New York for several months as a visiting scholar, where he created numerical models for electrochemical systems.

Louis worked at the interuniversity institute for microelectronic components (imec) in Leuven during his PhD, where he conducted fundamental strategic basic research on Li-ion batteries. The goal of the doctoral research was the development and characterization of mixed Li-ion and electron conducting coatings for Li-ion batteries. This research enabled him to exploit a plurality of advanced characterization techniques from the semiconductor industry on Li-ion battery systems and required thorough understanding of electrochemistry and physics.

The experimental research was complemented by numerical models which he developed at Columbia University in NYC. Optimization was done using Monte Carlo Markov chains.

Chien-Shiung Wu: the woman at the basis of quantum technology (but who didn’t get a Nobel Prize)

The 1957 Nobel Prize in Physics, according to many, went unfairly to Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen-Ning Yang. These two theoretical physicists had predicted the idea of ‘parity violation’, crucial in quantum physics, but it was Chien-Shiung Wu (1912-1997) who demonstrated the phenomenon through an experiment.Continue reading
