Stephanie has more than two decades of experience in energy technology innovation. She developed hydrogen fuel cells in Canada and Germany, automotive engine systems in France, and hydrogen storage materials in Brisbane before joining Nano-Nouvelle to develop lithium ion battery materials. Her prior management experience in large multinational corporations has helped Nano-Nouvelle develop an extensive network of collaborations with major global companies, a real challenge for a small Australian startup.
Stephanie is a director of the Australian Institute of Energy, a technical committee member with Standards Australia for electrical energy storage, and Engineers Australia named her one of Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers 2016. She has had substantial fundraising success with equity and grants, and also sits on the other side of the table as an angel investor and grants assessor.
