Congratulations to Sho Fujita of Queen’s University, Canada, recipient of the 2022 ECS Canada Section Student Award! For over 20 years, the section has recognized promising young engineers and scientists in the field of electrochemical power sources with this award. To qualify, students must be pursuing PhDs at Canadian universities in any area of science or engineering in which electrochemical science and technology and/or solid state science and technology is the central consideration. A Canadian university faculty member nominates them.
Sho Fujita is a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemistry at Queen’s University. His research interests lie in electrochemistry, electrocatalysis, and surface science. His work at Queen’s focuses on the synthesis, design, and characterization of nanomaterials for microscopic rechargeable batteries. His supervisor is Dr. Gregory Jerkiewicz. Sho completed his BSc in Engineering and MSc in Chemical Engineering at Yokohama National University in Japan under the supervision of Dr. Shigenori Mitsushima. For his MSc, he collaborated with industrial companies on the degradation mechanism and electrocatalytic activity of a lithium-doped nickel oxide anode for use in alkaline water electrolyzers.
