Julia Müller-Hülstede studied chemistry at the Carl-von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany and graduated as M. Sc. in 2018. In her bachelor thesis which was in cooperation with NEXT ENERGY – EWE Research Center for Energy Technology she investigated the platin nanoparticle deposition on carbon black and reduced graphene oxide as ORR catalysts. The master thesis was written at Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in the field of fiber reinforced plastics. Since 2018 she is a PhD candidate at the Carl-von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany working at German Aerospace Center, Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics in Oldenburg. The PhD work focusses on activated Biochar based Fe-N-C catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction in HT-PEMFC.
