Congratulations to Joe Egitto for successfully defending his master’s thesis! Joe also received the Energy Engineering Outstanding Master Student Award!!! Joe is leaving the group to start his new career as an Enterprise Solutions Engineer at NECI (New England Controls). We wish him best of luck.

Ertan gave an invited talk entitled “Toward High Performance Redox Flow Batteries for Grid-Scale Energy Storage” in the Graduate Seminar Series of the Mechanical and Energy Engineering at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.

Ertan gave a presentation on the non-aqueous redox flow battery project at the I Meeting on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Devices organized by the University Carlos III of Madrid.

Ceren and Ertan publish a paper in collaboration with Cappillino and Mayes Groups from UMass Dartmouth entitled “Designing high energy density flow batteries by tuning active-material thermodynamics” in RSC Advances. Congrats!!!

We are excited to announce that our research proposal in collaboration with Prof. Fuqiang Liu and Prof. Xinfang Jin on High Energy Density Flow Batteries for Naval Installations on Shore and Shipboard Applications has been funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Congratulations to the team!!!

Our lab has received an award from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO). In collaboration with Prof. Murat Inalpolat, Prof. Alireza Amirkhizi and AvCarb Material Solutions, this project aims to manufacture fabric electrodes using a high-throughput screening platform for redox flow batteries.

Ceren and Ertan publish a paper in collaboration with Marcos Vera and Pablo Angel Garcia-Salaberri from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid entitled “Modeling the Effect of Channel Tapering on the Pressure Drop and Flow Distribution Characteristics of Interdigitated Flow Fields in Redox Flow Batteries” in Processes.

Congratulations to Mahnaz Nourani for successfully defending her dissertation! Dr. Nourani, E2STL’s first PhD graduate, also received the Mechanical Engineering Outstanding Doctoral Student Award!!!
