We are highly interactive even as we maintain our areas of responsibility and focus. While we do have structure, in communication we are a flat organization with easy access to each other. Some of my principal colleagues describe themselves as follows:

Joseph Centofanti

I have been General Counsel of TIAX since July 2002, and of CAMX Power since May 2014. In that capacity, I am involved in legal matters which arise concerning each company’s operations, including the drafting, review and negotiation of contracts, confidentiality agreements, licensing arrangements, real estate and employment matters, as well as dealing with intellectual property conversion to patents and surrounding matters. The treasury function is also my responsibility.

Dr. David Ofer

I joined the Advanced Battery Materials and Design group of TIAX in 2005, and when it became CAMX Power, continued on with it. By training I am a chemist with BS from Northeastern and PhD in inorganic chemistry from MIT (1992). Previously I worked at Foster Miller and Duracell.

Dr. Jane Rempel

After a B.S. in chemical engineering and mathematics from University of Wisconsin, I continued at MIT in chemical engineering receiving a PhD in 2007 and shortly thereafter joined TIAX and then transitioned to CAMX power. I have a broad range of expertise in material performance assessment and modeling, ab-initio materials modeling, and continuum modeling of reaction kinetics. At TIAX and now CAMX Power, I have proposed and led many successful programs for the development of advanced anode materials, and advanced electrochemical characterization techniques.

Dr. Brian Barnett

I have been with TIAX since its founding and our transition to CAMX Power. I was trained in chemistry at McGill University (BSc) and in electrochemistry at University of Ottawa (PhD). My areas of specialization are battery technologies and markets, battery safety and technology development/management processes. I have directed many multidisciplinary teams associated with batteries and spanning safety, manufacturing, engineering, economic, strategic, environmental and market issues resulting in the initiation of many noteworthy projects. Prior to TIAX, I was at Arthur D. Little, Inc.

Dr. Frank Rauscher

Directing scale-up and production of CAM-7 as well as the fabrication of cells are my primary areas of focus. I joined CAMX Power at its spinoff from TIAX in 2014. My formal training is in chemical engineering and includes a MS from University of Clausthal and PhD from University of Magdeburg. My interests are in the areas of nanoparticle and particle synthesis, electrochemical energy conversion and storage, particle surface modification, process technology for particle synthesis and polymers as well as process simulation and analysis.

Jack Treger

I am part of the development team focusing on anode materials, electrolyte additives, and separator modifications. My formal training was in chemistry with a BS from Northeastern University. I have been with TIAX and now CAMX Power since their founding. My areas of expertise include organic/ceramic synthesis, analytical chemistry, polymers, coatings and electrochemical materials. Prior to TIAX, I worked for many years at battery companies including Duracell.

Adrian Pullen

Together with Suresh, I direct the development of CAM-7, our cathode product, and am deeply involved in its synthesis as well as its scale up at our pilot plant.  I am one of the inventors of the next generation core patents. My background includes BS in Chemical Engineering from University of Massachusetts, Amherst and MS in Chemical Engineering from Yale University. I joined TIAX in 2002 and continued on with CAM Power. My expertise is in solid state ceramics synthesis and the design of electrochemical test platforms for high throughput screening.

Dr. Suresh Sriramulu

I joined TIAX in 2002 and continued on with CAMX Power. Currently I head the continued development of CAM-7 including its next generation versions, as well as our advanced materials. I also work in our technology and IP strategies and pursuits.  I am one of the inventors of the next generation core patents. My formal training was in Chemical Engineering with a B. Tech. from Indian Institute of Technology, MS from University of Wyoming and PhD (1999) from University of Washington. During the initial years of TIAX I worked on SOFCs, PEMFCs, and automotive after treatment systems.

I have directed many multidisciplinary teams associated with batteries and spanning safety, manufacturing, engineering, economic, strategic, environmental and market issues resulting in the initiation of many noteworthy projects. Prior to TIAX, I was at Arthur D. Little, Inc. for two decades working mostly on batteries. My current focus at CAMX Power is on enhancing and extending our many deeply technical projects for US Government agencies and also broadly contributing to numerous ongoing activities and projects.

Dr. Chris McCoy

I have been with TIAX and CAMX Power since 2006. My formal training was in chemistry at Dartmouth (BS) and then in inorganic chemistry at MIT (PhD, 1995) I have expertise in electrochemistry, materials chemistry, and electrical engineering.  While contributing to many programs, my main thrust has been on the development of new safety technologies for lithium-ion batteries, research into the underlying causes of safety incidents in the lithium-ion system, audits of safety incidents involving field-failure of lithium-ion batteries, and development of new materials platforms for Li-ion batteries. I led and continue to lead a number of government and commercial programs in both materials chemistry and electronics. Many of these programs were proposed by me and in the programs I lead I also have major hands-on technical role for instance in the successful effort to develop and commercialize novel cell equalization and battery management technology for lithium-ion systems all the way from the initial experimentation and prototyping design phase, through benefits validation and marketing of the technology, and to final licensing. Many of the programs I lead or proposed have yielded inventions in the fields of battery systems, electronic systems, and organic semiconductors with me as the key inventor. Currently I direct activities and major programs for making batteries safer with for instance early detection technologies of incipient shorts where significant patents are pending.

By training I am a chemist with BS from Northeastern and PhD in inorganic chemistry from MIT (1992). Previously I worked at Foster Miller and Duracell. My professional experience which stretches 20 plus years and which includes key roles at Foster Miller and Duracell as well as at TIAX and then CAMX Power, centered on development of electrochemical energy conversion and storage technologies, with inventions in areas of battery state-of-charge sensing and display, solid polymer electrolyte proton exchange membranes, polymer processing, nonaqueous liquid lithium electrolyte, lithium-ion battery active materials, and lithium-ion cell internal short circuit detection. At CAMX Power, I have led or am continuing to lead multiple large development programs in many of these areas. I have been the principal author of many successful grant proposals at CAMX Power. Currently I am actively involved in material development as well as IP generation, being one of the key inventors of the next generation patents CAMX Power has been granted. I also direct many of the projects that I had proposed to grant agencies.
