Dr. Christian Miesner

Dr. Christian Miesner is the VP of Battery & Cell Testing within AVL’s test instruments division. He is passionate about electrification as a big leaver to decarbonization.

Given that the battery is the most expensive part of an electrified powertrain and at the same time has the greatest potential for improvement in terms of both cost and performance, gaining insights out of the testing of battery is a key pillar for a quick development of EVs.

Christian has worked in battery testing for over ten years. Prior to batteries, he worked on power semiconductors for almost ten years, focusing on the use of wide bandgap semiconductors in power applications.

He holds a Ph.D. in Semiconductor Physics from the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technical University of Munich.
