Ahmet Kusoglu

Ahmet KusogluAhmet Kusoglu is a research scientist in the energy technology area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), where he works on polymer materials for electrochemical devices and related electrochemical-mechanical phenomena for energy applications.

Kusoglu joined LBNL in 2010 as a postdoctoral fellow to study membrane transport and degradation in fuel cells. His research at Berkeley has focused on modeling and diagnostics of ionomers and their interfaces in an effort to understand and improve their functionalities in electrochemical energy devices. Prior to joining the lab, he received his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Delaware.

Kusoglu has published over 35 papers in peer-reviewed journals and a book chapter on fuel cell membranes. His current research interests involve the characterization and modeling of degradation, transport, and structure/function relationships in ionomers and thin films.
