Mathematical Modeling of Electrochemical Systems
By Ralph E. White

Ralph E. White’s scientific career has revolved around the areas of fuel cells, batteries, electrodeposition, corrosion, and propelling numerous students into the sciences. White started his career working with such notable figures as John Newman at the University of California at Berkeley, which eventually led him on a path to his current position as the Professor of Chemical Engineering and Distinguished Scientist at the University of South Carolina.

White’s career at the University of South Carolina began in 1993, where he joined the staff as the Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering, then as the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computing. In 1995, he founded the university’s Center for Electrochemical Engineering.

White is a former treasurer (1990-1994) and current Fellow of ECS. He has also received the title of Fellow from the American Institute of Chemical Engineering and AAAS, and has won many international awards, inducing the Olin Palladium Award (2013) from ECS and the AESF Scientific Achievement Award (2000).

John R. Scully’s teaching career began in 1990 when he joined the University of Virginia. As the current Charles Henderson Endowed Chaired Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and the co-director of the Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering, Scully has mentored 35 PhD student, 36 MS student, 13 post-doctoral scholars, and numerous undergraduate research students and visiting scholars.

Scully’s research focuses on standards of living and safety through understanding the scientific mechanisms of corrosion while preventing and protecting against corrosion phenomena. From his career with Sandia National Laboratories and the Naval Research and Development Center from 1983-1990 to his position as a visiting scientist at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Scully’s career in science has covered many topics.

Among his many honors, Scully is a Fellow of ECS, National Association of Corrosion Engineers, and American Society for Metals; received the H. H. Uhlig Award from ECS, and was presented the A. B. Campbell and W. R. Whitney Awards from NACE.
