Bandlamudi Vamsikrishna

Postdoctoral research fellow

Vamsi graduated with MSc (Chemistry) from Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning and PhD (Chemistry) from HySA Systems, University of The Western Cape. During his PhD he worked on thesis: The effect of flow field design on the degradation mechanisms and long term stability of HT-PEM fuel cell. 

After his masters he worked as Testing & Development engineer in Research and Development department at TVS Motor Company, one of the leading manufacturers of two wheelers and three wheelers vehicles in India. During this tenure he worked for development of fuel cell vehicle and testing of batteries for automobile application.

Currently he is working as a postdoctoral research scholar under the supervision of Dr Mykhaylo Lototskyy at HySA Systems, South African Institute for Advanced Materials Chemistry. His work mainly includes advanced characterization of hydrogen storage materials and their integration in hydrogen storage and compression systems.
