Nina Wisinger

Nina Balke, received her Ph.D in Materials Sciences from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, in 2006. After being a Feodor-Lynen fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation at the University of California in Berkeley she transitioned to the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. She is specialized in nanoscale characterization of electromechanical effects in oxides and other functional materials focusing on ferroelectric and energy storage materials based on electro-chemo-mechanical coupling as well as in-situ characterization of solid-liquid interfaces.
