The ECS Energy Technology Division recognized the 2022 Energy Technology Division Graduate Student Award Sponsored by BioLogic recipients at the 241st ECS Meeting in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Grace Lindquist of the University of Oregon was acknowledged for outstanding research in the development of robust high-performance alkaline membrane electrolyzer technology; and Zachary Schiffer of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for developing methods for harnessing renewable ammonia and for understanding energy exchanges in electrochemical transformations.
The Electrochemical Society is now accepting nominations for the newly established John B. Goodenough Award of The Electrochemical Society
The Society announced the creation of the new biannual award at Nobel laureate and longtime ECS member John B. Goodenough’s 100th Birthday Celebration on July 25, 2022. The award recognizes distinguished and outstanding contributions in:
- Fundamental and technological aspects of electrochemical materials science and engineering;
- Materials innovations in the areas of batteries, solid ion conductors, fuel cells, transition-metal oxides, and/or magnetic materials.
Nomination deadline: October 23, 2022
There are still opportunities before the end of the year to recognize colleagues, students, and fellow scientists and engineers for their outstanding efforts and contributions to electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. The list of upcoming deadlines for ECS Society, division, section, and student awards follows. Nominate today!
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2023 Class of Fellows of The Electrochemical Society. Each year, up to 15 new Fellows are selected. Do you know an ECS member who has made advanced individual technological contributions in the fields of electrochemical and solid state science and technology who has also been involved in the affairs of The Electrochemical Society? Why not acknowledge them by submitting a nomination? Read more about the qualifications and nominations process here and review the complete list of distinguished ECS Fellows.
The nomination deadline is February 1, 2023

The Daniel Cubicciotti Student Award recognizes a deserving undergraduate student from a college or university in Northern California pursuing a career in the physical sciences. First prize recipients receive an etched metal plaque and $2,000 prize. The section also recognizes up to two students with honorable mentions. They receive framed certificates and $500 prizes.
Congratulations to the 2022 Industrial Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering Division student award winners: Arghya Patra and Matthew Liu. Learn about the award winners below!
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…)
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.
Support your colleagues, students, and fellow scientists and engineers’ noteworthy contributions by nominating them for an ECS award! They deserve to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments.
