Christian’s first visit to AGM for InBAT follow-up

“Irn Bru + Pickled herring”. Seems an odd combination, right? “Julmust + Haggis”? Somewhat strange as well. How about “Scottish battery scale-up + Swedish sensor developer”? That, my friends, sounds just right!  My name is…

Irn Bru + Pickled herring”. Seems an odd combination, right? “Julmust + Haggis”? Somewhat strange as well. How about “Scottish battery scale-up + Swedish sensor developer”? That, my friends, sounds just right! 

My name is Christian Sundvall and I am the most recent member of Insplorion’s family. I have a background in materials science and nanotechnology, have worked for more than five years in a green tech nanotechnology start-up, and am joining Insplorion as a Development Engineer working mainly with the recently initiated Eurostars project. Throughout the project’s lifetime I will be working together with our partner AGM Batteries towards realizing and optimizing the NanoPlasmonics Sensing (NPS) probe for operando measurements in Li-ion batteries: the InBAT sensor. 

Earlier this month I joined Elin, our CTO, and Saima as our small delegation from Insplorion visited AGM Batteries in sunny (believe it or not) Thurso, Scotland, for a follow-up meeting with the Eurostars project. Productive talks and discussions were had, and the spirits were high as both parties remain highly motivated by and invested in the pursuit of enabling a more sustainable future through smarter battery technologies.  

Going forward I expect to be spending some time at AGM Batteries as we continue to develop and improve our sensor probe, and though I will be going there for work I am confident I will be enjoying the familiar company of our friends at AGM. I also hope I will be able to see and do some of the other wonderful things Scotland has to offer. Whisky comes to mind, for example. 

Take care, everyone, and see you around!
