ECS San Francisco Section Young Investigator Lecture Series Showcases Next Generation of Electrochemistry ResearchersPosted on December 14, 2021 by Frances Chaves
Nominations sought for 2022 speakers
The ECS San Francisco Section hosted its Inaugural Young Investigator Lecture Series on November 19, 2021. Over the course of the three-hour virtual session, attendees were treated to 10 short presentations by senior graduate students and postdocs from California universities. The talks covered a wide range of electrochemistry research, from lithium-ion batteries to CO2 reduction, fundamental examinations of ion transport, and charge transfer kinetics.
Electrochemistry is the magic that binds together the many fields that excite Professor Bilge Yildiz, ECS Awarded Life Member and recipient of the 2012 ECS Charles W. Tobias Young Investigator Award—and invited speaker in the 241st ECS Meeting Symposium I05: Mechano-Electro-Chemical Coupling in Energy Related Materials and Devices 4. Prof. Yildiz was named a 2021 Fellow of the American Physical Society for “innovative contributions to understanding and manipulating ionic defects and charge transport at electro-chemo-mechanically coupled oxide interfaces and devices.” (more…)
The ECS San Francisco Section presents the inaugural Young Investigator Lectures Series. The COVID-19 pandemic has impaired travel and in-person conferences, negatively impacting early career researchers in the scientific field. The section’s series creates opportunities for senior graduate students and postdocs to highlight their research in virtual short lectures.
The inaugural series showcases 10 speakers from California universities. The ECS San Francisco Section organized the lecture series. Speakers are selected by the Young Investigator Lecture Nomination and Selection Committee.

Don’t miss the two remaining virtual U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) workshops on Electrochemistry in Industry Applications and Innovation Ecosystem. Join participants from academia, National Labs, industry, and NGO’s sharing their expertise, insights, and vision to help shape government policy regarding electrochemical processes across the U.S. industrial sector. Or, be a listener and learn how adopting electrochemical technologies and strategies could substantially improve the performance of the industrial sector (i.e., energy productivity; thermal efficiency; reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; reduced number of process steps and process complexity; opportunities for technology development to accelerate commercial deployment).

The International Space Station (ISS), launched in 1998, is a modular satellite in low orbit around the Earth, which is visible even with the naked eye.
In October, NASA launched an Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus resupply ship. This cargo ship carried an experimental system on board used to study the oxidation of ammonia under microgravity conditions to convert urine into water on the ISS. Improving this waste management system has far-reaching repercussions for longer exploratory missions where the weight of the payload must be optimized with the amount of water needed (which is heavy) to sustain life during the trip. Given the limited resources aboard a spaceship, the recovery of water from all processes is of great importance. (more…)
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.
