Event description

Description

CHF is pleased to welcome Yury Gogotsi, professor of materials science and engineering, Drexel University, and M. Stanley Whittingham, SUNY distinguished professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering, SUNY Binghamton. Together they will present “New Energy Storage Technologies for Enabling Renewables.”




About the Panelists

Stanley Whittingham is a SUNY Distinguished Professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering at SUNY Binghamton. He is also the director of the NorthEast Center for Chemical Energy Storage, a U.S. Department of Energy Frontier Research Center, based at the Binghamton campus. Whittingham has been active in the field of lithium batteries since 1971 when he won the Young Author Award of the Electrochemical Society for his work on the solid electrolyte beta-alumina. In 1972 he discovered the role of intercalation in battery reactions, which resulted in the first commercial lithium rechargeable batteries that were built by Exxon. In 1988 he returned to academia at SUNY Binghamton to initiate a program in materials chemistry.

Among his many awards was a Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science fellowship in the Department of Physics of the University of Tokyo in 1993. In 2004 he received the Battery Division Research Award from the Electrochemical Society. In 2012 he received the Yeager Award from the International Battery Association for his lifetime contributions to battery research; in 2015, the Lifetime Contributions to Battery Technology Award from NAATBatt International; and in 2017, the Senior Research Award from Solid State Ionics. He is a fellow of both the Electrochemical Society and the Materials Research Society. He is vice chair of the Board of Directors of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium.

Whittingham received his BA and DPhil degrees in chemistry from Oxford University.




Yury Gogotsi is the Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor, Distinguished University Professor, and Trustee Chair of materials science and engineering at Drexel University. He also serves as the director of the A. J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute. His research group works on nanostructured carbons, 2-D carbides, and other nanomaterials for energy, water, and biomedical applications. He has obtained more than 50 patents and has coauthored 2 books; written 16 book chapters and more than 500 papers in peer-reviewed journals; and edited 14 books. He was recognized as a highly cited researcher by Thomson Reuters/Clarivate Analytics in 2014 through 2017.

He has received numerous awards for his research and has been elected a fellow of the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS), Materials Research Society, American Ceramic Society, Electrochemical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, and NanoSMAT Society, as well as an academician of the World Academy of Ceramics and a full member of the International Institute for the Science of Sintering. He also serves on the Materials Research Society Board of Directors and acts as an associate editor of ACS Nano.

He received his MS in 1984 and his PhD in 1986 from Kiev Polytechnic Institute and a DSc degree in 1995 from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.




The Joseph Priestley Society (JPS) lecture series explores topics in science, technology, and industry through professional networking receptions and lectures by industry leaders.
