Rashid Ahmed Rifat

A wanderer in my own world, engineer & researcher


Currently studying Ph.D (Doctor of Engineering Sciences) at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Belgium.


Ph.D. (Doctor of Engineering Sciences)
Since January 2024, I embarked on my Ph.D. (Doctor of Engineering Sciences) journey as a researcher with the Battery Innovation Centre Team at MOBI research centre, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). I am currently working on the EU project THOR, focusing on the development of an innovative methodology for battery testing. My doctoral research is centered on the electrochemical aging model of Li-ion battery systems, showcasing my deep interest and expertise in battery modeling, electrochemistry and energy storage technology.
Skills: Electrochemistry · Electrochemical Modeling · Battery Modeling · Battery Testing


Industrial Master's Thesis
Started a position as industrial master thesis student at nanoCaps with academic supervision by University of South–Eastern Norway. This position is in addition to the R&D Trainee.

My thesis topic: SMD Supercapacitor of high-energy and high-power density. This industrial thesis is comprised of:
  1. Packaging of SMD supercapacitor of high-energy and high-power density
  2. Electrochemical characterisation of different types of battery cells, analysing parameters e.g CV, EIS, ESR, aereal/volumetric capacitance
  3. Assembly and preparation of carbon nanotubes (CNT) electrode coin cells using glove box
  4. Charactersation of CNT materials through TE SEM, FE SEM, AFM, Raman spectroscopy
  5. Synthesis of high density and inter-cross linked CNT electrodes by APCVD process in small and big CVD reactor
  6. Analysing, reporting and logging the data with BioLogic EC LAB, Matlab, OriginPro

Skills: Nanoparticles · SMD · Battery Testing · Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) · Carbon Nanotubes · Materials Characterization · Supercapacitors
  • Master of Science (Technology)- Aalto University, Finland
  • Master of Science – Micro and Nano System Technology- University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) , Norway
  • Master of Science in Electrical Engineering- The Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), Hungary
  • SSIs is a two-year (120 ECTS) Joint Master Programme, with full student mobility between the three partner institutions with leading expertise in the academic fields of Smart Systems and Microsystems Technology. The curriculum is designed to provide a general understanding of smart systems integration (esp. MEMS) with a strong emphasis on design practice.
