Dr Mahdokht Shaibani is an energy storage researcher, inventor, and solution provider. She has expertise in materials synthesis, engineering, and scale-up for next-generation energy storage systems, including lithium metal batteries, silicon anodes, flow batteries, supercapacitors, and lithium-ion capacitors. Mahdokht has conducted pioneering research in developing practical graphene-based protection technologies and expansion-tolerant architectures for stabilizing lithium-sulfur batteries. She explores the applications of Li-S batteries and Graphene supercapacitors in transportation, grid storage, and wireless sensor networks. Mahdokht has a passion for writing and communicating stories of a scientific nature and has authored several opinion and analysis pieces on critical energy-related topics suitably simplified for raising the awareness in general public.
Mahdokht has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on energy storage from Monash University, Australia.
