After a B.S. in chemical engineering and mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, I continued at MIT in chemical engineering, receiving a PhD in 2007, and shortly thereafter joined TIAX, 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. I have recently completed a multi-year, high-profile program funded by DOE to integrate CAM-7 with high-performance silicon anode, to meet near-term PHEV targets. Together with Brian, I am currently focusing on enhancing and extending our projects with the US Government, even as I serve or direct many project teams.
