Ivan Ilić did his bachelor degree in chemistry at the University of Zagreb (2015), followed by a master in chemistry at the Free University of Berlin (2017). He did his PhD at Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in the department of Prof. Markus Antonietti researching sustianable cathodes for lihtium-ion batteries derived from biowaste. Upon finishing his studies in 2020 he continued working in the same department developing anodes for sodium-ion batteries based on hard carbon materials in the project led by Prof. Martin Oschatz. In 2021 he joined IIT as a part of ELFO project focusing on the development of edible batteries.
