Pandemic Wake-up Call

Ram Manthiram urges the science community to step up

In our series, The ECS Community Adapts and AdvancesArumugam “Ram” Manthiram urges the science community to be proactive in confronting the pandemic and climate change challenges threatening the global community. Ram is Director of the Texas Materials Institute and the Materials Science and Engineering Program at the University of Texas Austin (UTAUS). He holds a co-appointment as the Joe C. Walter Chair in Engineering and Jack S. Josey Professor in Energy Studies. Ram’s research group focuses on the design and development of affordable, efficient, durable materials for electrochemical energy conversion and storagespecifically, batteries and fuel cellsto address global energy and environmental challenges.

Saket Bhargava

The ECS Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division Student Achievement Award recognizes and rewards promising young engineers and scientists in fields pertaining to this division. This year’s recipient, Saket Bhargava, is a PhD student in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). His work with Paul Kenis’ research group focuses on using flow electrolyzers to develop system-level process intensification approaches and studying the effects of intensified process conditions on the activity, selectivity, and energy efficiency for CO2 electroreduction to value-added chemicals. His award talk is titled, “System-Level Approaches for Intensifying the CO2 Electrolysis Process.”

The IEEE Division Student Achievement Award was established in 1989. It includes a framed certificate and $1,000 (USD) prize. The annual nomination deadline is September 15. (more…)

UPDATE: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 11th International Frumkin Symposium on Electrochemistry has been postponed until October 2021 (expectedly October 18-22).

The symposium organizing committee hopes to proceed with the symposium in its originally planned format on this later date.

The symposium website, as well as the registration and abstracts submission engine, will remain fully operational so that previously submitted materials are kept active.

Further announcements will be available on here
