ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Amy Marschilok is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Stony Brook University, where she also holds an Adjunct Faculty position in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering. She holds a joint appointment as Scientist and Energy Storage Division Manager in the Interdisciplinary Science Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory. She serves as Deputy Director for the Center for Mesoscale Transport Properties, an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Dr. Marschilok was previously employed as a Senior Scientist in the Medical Battery Research and Development Group at Greatbatch, Inc., where she was recognized as a Visionary of the Year.

Her current research centers on materials and electrode concepts for high power, high energy density, extended life batteries. She is also interested in electrochemistry-based approaches for materials synthesis and characterization. She has mentored over 50 student researchers and co-authored over 185 publications.

THE PRESENTATION:

Batteries are ubiquitous in our everyday lives and often appear as black boxes. However, the chemistry inherent to their function is diverse and complicated. This talk will highlight progress and opportunities for employing electrochemical energy storage to build a green energy future. Examples of mechanistic insight gained from in-situ and operando characterization of functional systems will be highlighted.
