Congratulations to Keegan Adair, winner of the 2020 ECS Canada Section Student Award.

The Canada Section Student Award is one of four awards in the ECS Canada Section recognition program. Established in 1987, the award recognizes promising young engineers and scientists in the field of electrochemical power sources. It is intended to encourage the recipients to initiate or continue careers in the field. The recipient is a student pursuing a PhD at a Canadian university in any area of science or engineering in which electrochemical science and technology and/or solid state science and technology is the central consideration.

This year’s winner, Keegan Adair, received his BSc in chemistry from the University of British Columbia in 2016. He is currently a PhD candidate in Professor Xueliang (Andy) Sun’s Nanomaterials and Energy Group at the University of Western Ontario. Recognition of Adair’s work includes the Ontario Graduate Scholarship and the NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship-Doctoral award. (more…)
