Through generous donations from friends, colleagues, and members of the scientific community, the Jan Talbot Collection officially reached a fundraising milestone of $30,000, ensuring free, permanent access to Talbot’s legacy of ECS-published works.

A longtime ECS member, Talbot served as board president (2001-2002), vice president (1998-2001), and editor of Interface (1995-1998). She was inducted as a Fellow of The Electrochemical Society in 2004. Talbot’s career outside ECS is equally impressive. Since 2000, Talbot has directed the Chemical Engineering Program at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Jacobs School of Engineering. She served as their associate dean from 2014-2016. In 2010, she received a UCSD Distinguished Teaching Award. Talbot chaired the Academic Senate from 2003-2004. She also worked as a development engineer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TN, from 1975-1981. (more…)
