Professor Arumugam Manthiram

The Electrochemistry Society (ECS) is pleased to announce that Professor Arumugam Manthiram, George T. & Gladys H. Abell Endowed Chair of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, has been named the first recipient of the newly created John B. Goodenough Award of The Electrochemical Society. The Goodenough award recognizes distinguished contributions to the fundamental and technological aspects of electrochemical materials science and engineering. Professor Manthiram’s major contributions to the field include pioneering fundamental and technological contributions to electrochemical energy conversion and storage, involving the development of new materials, advanced characterization, structure-property-performance relationships, and prototype devices. Key examples include the development of sustainable, low-cost, durable materials for batteries and fuel cells, as well as delineation of the intricacies involved with ion and electron transport and magnetic interactions in transition-metal oxides. The award will be presented during the 243rd ECS Meeting in Boston, MA, from May 28 to June 2, 2023. Prof. Manthiram will deliver his award address at that meeting.

Congratulations to John Holoubek, University of California, San Diego, and Singyuk Hou, University of Maryland, College Park, the 2022 ECS Battery Division Student Research Award winners. Holoubek and Hou presented their award talks at the 242nd ECS Meeting in Atlanta, GA, where they received the awards from Y. Shirley Meng and Brett Lucht. 

Singyuk Hou
University of Maryland, College Park
A03-0211 Energy Storage with the Abundant Divalent Metal Batteries

Singyuk Hou’s academic career has focused on the research of electrolytes and interfaces for metal anodes. After completing her BS and MS in Chemistry, she started her PhD under the supervision of Professor Chunsheng Wang at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her PhD research is on the molecule-level control of the solvation structure using chelants that promote the charge transfer kinetics of magnesium and calcium metal batteries. It also extends to SEI engineering for high-energy lithium-ion and lithium metal batteries by developing novel electrolyte systems. She has published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and co-authored four patents.

Congratulations to the 2022 Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division student award winners: Arghya Patra and Matthew Liu. Learn about the award winners below!

Matthew LiuIE&EE Division Student Achievement Award

Award Recipient: Matthew Liu

Matthew Liu is a PhD student in the Chemical Engineering Department at Stanford University and a NASA space technology graduate research fellow. A member of William Tarpeh’s lab, Matthew researches electrochemical reactive-separation processes to recover ammonia from nitrogen-rich wastewaters. He has a particular focus on electrocatalytic nitrate reduction, which has led him to investigate systems driven by heterogeneous catalysis, molecular catalysis, and single atom catalysis. Matthew is also interested in how the structure and composition of the microenvironment at the electrode-electrolyte interface directs nitrate reduction performance. (more…)
