On May 14, 2020, the ECS Board of Directors approved a proposal by the Individual Membership Committee to grant student members full voting rights.

Student Membership Expands

Student members are the fastest growing segment of The Electrochemical Society. From 2010 to 2019, student membership grew by nearly 30 percent. Since 2016, ECS Student Chapters doubled to more than 100 chapters. Excellent and highly active student chapters are located around the globe. News about these chapters and their activities is chronicled in recent issues of Interface. In the period from 2010 to 2019, student members showed tremendous passion for ECS and supporting its key missions. Students are an invaluable part of the Society’s membership and community. (more…)

Scherson_Daniel_2012Daniel Scherson
Elected to President of the Board of Directors
Daniel Scherson is currently the Frank Hovorka Professor of Chemistry at Case Western Reserve University. He received a PhD in chemistry from The University of California at Davis under the late Joel Keizer working in the area of nonlinear, non-equilibrium thermodynamics.

His interests in interfacial science prompted him to spend the next four years as a postdoctoral research associate in the laboratories of John Newman at UC Berkeley, Phil Ross at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Ernest B. Yeager at Case Western Reserve University, and finally at the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin, Germany, working both with Heinz Gerischer and Dieter Kolb, from whom he acquired both theoretical and experimental knowledge in the general area of physical electrochemistry, which ultimately shaped his academic career.
