Kelsey Hatzell wins the ECS Toyota 2019-2020 Fellowship.

Posted by on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 in News.

Kelsey Hatzell, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is one of five recipients of an Electrochemical Society Toyota 2019-2020 Young Investigator Fellowship awarded this year for projects in green energy technology.

The fellowship is a partnership between the ECS and Toyota Research Institute of North America, a division of Toyota Motor North America.

Fellows receive $50,000 in grants to conduct the research outlined in their proposals, a one-year complimentary ECS membership, and they will publish or present their findings. Depending on research progress and results, Toyota may enter into a research agreement with the recipient to continue the work.

In her proposal—Tracking Ion Transport Pathways and Hybrid Solid Electrolytes—Hatzell’s research group intends to examine transport in solid electrolytes for advanced all solid-state lithium metal batteries. They will couple advanced synchrotron x-ray techniques with modeling and electrochemistry experiments to probe physical and chemical transformations at buried interfaces.
