About me

Adam Best is a Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency. 

Adam's core interests cover electrochemical energy storage with a particular emphasis on lithium metal batteries. CSIRO's research teams are focussed on developing novel electrolytes based on room temperature ionic liquids (molten salts that are liquid at room temperature) to enable high energy batteries such as Li-S and Li-Air. They are also developing electrolytes to enable high voltage cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries.

Another area of interest is in wearable power. CSIRO has developed flexible batteries which could, ultimately, be able to be integrated into garments and apparel to power the next generation of electronics.
