Karolina Biernacka  awarded her Bachelor's degree in Chemical Technology at Warsaw University of Technology in Poland (Faculty of Chemistry) in 2016. She was participating the European Master Program - Material for Energy Storage and Conversion (MESC) from where she received her Master's degree. During her Master's she was  studying at different universities -  Aix Marseille Universite (France) , the Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) , the University of Picardy Jules Verne (France) and Deakin University (Australia). After she completed her Master's degree, she returns to Deakin University to continue her education and undertake the PhD under the supervision of Prof Maria Forsyth, A/Prof. Jenny Pringle and Prof Doug MacFarlane working on "An Investigation of Novel Solid State membranes for Sodium Batteries".


As part of the Bachelors degree, she completed the Engineering thesis on the topic of composition optimalization of electrolytes based on new non-fluoric salt for Li-ion batteries. During her Masters studies she completed an internship in Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint Etienne (France) investigating on flexible microbatteries and also exploring the development of new organic ionic plastic crystals (OIPCs) as solid state electrolytes during the final semester at Deakin University (Australia).

The current research is focus on solid state electrolyte system – particularly new family of materials OIPCs.
