Philipp Adelhelm is a materials scientist and received his education at the University of Stuttgart and the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research.

After graduation in 2004, he joined the group of Prof. Markus Antonietti at the Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and worked on carbon materials with tailored porosity.

He received his PhD in physical chemistry in 2007 and worked as a post doc at Utrecht University (group of Prof. de Jongh) studying sodium and magnesium based hydrogen storage materials.

From 2009 to 2015, he was a young investigator research group leader at the Justus-Liebig-University Giessen (group of Prof. Jürgen Janek). The major focus was on exploring the cell chemistry of sodium-based batteries.

From 2015-2019 he was professor at the Institute for Technical Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry (ITUC) at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena.

Since 10/2019 he is professor for physical chemistry at Humboldt-University Berlin (Department of Chemistry).

Since 3/2020 he is co-affiliated with the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) by leading the research group “operando battery analysis” (CE-GOBA), a joint initiative between HZB and Humboldt University
