Short CV

Filippo Maglia is a member of the BMW Battery Cell Technology Group, where he is responsible for the predevelopment of cathode materials and electrodes for future generations of electrical energy storage systems for automotive applications. He received his PhD degree in Chemistry from the University of Pavia (Italy) in 1998. Upon graduation, he held the following positions at the University of Pavia: postdoctoral scholar (1999-2003), assistant professor (2005-2012). Between November 2004 and March 2005 as well as between March 2006 and June 2006 he was visiting Scientist at the University of California, Davis. He has published more than 120 refereed journal articles.

Research Interests

Advanced materials for energy storage, in particular cathode materials lithium-ion batteries for automotive applications. Characterization of power, lifetime and safety properties of high-energy density materials and batteries.
