Congratulations to NMG colleague and collaborator Professor Patrice Simon

Please join me in congratulating our great friend, excellent colleague and close collaborator Professor Patrice Simon, who has been selected to receive a 2015 Silver Medal from CNRS (French National Research Organization –
Centre national de la recherche scientifique) this year.   He is one of just two chemists in France who will be awarded this prestigious medal.   This is a great achievement and we look forward to future discoveries and joint papers with Patrice!

Kelsey & Boris papers

Kelsey’s paper titled “Flowable Conducting Particle Networks in Redox-Active Electrolytes for Grid Energy Storage” was #6 most read in January in JES! Congrats Kelsey and co-authors!

Best Wishes for 2015

We are excited to share that last year was our most productive year in terms of publications and awards. We published more than 40 articles including Science, Nature, PNAS, the Advanced Materials family of journals and many
high-quality ACS and RSC publications. Our research was highlighted worldwide in famous newspaperes and online scientific websites.

Our PhD fellow,Kristy Jost designed DNI calendar where our key research is highlighted (See below).

We wish everyone a happy New Year! We hope new year will bring lot more discoveries from our lab.

Kelsey Hatzell won Arthur Nowick award at MRS

We are pleased to announce that Kelsey Hatzell won the Arthur Nowick award this year. Congratulations to Kelsey!

This award is presented at each Fall Meeting starting 2012. Kristy Jost won the inaugural award in 2012 (http://www.mrs.org/f12-gsa/). Kelsey won it this year. Thus, two of the three most prestigious graduate student awards in materials science given worldwide went to our students. We simply have the best materials science PhD students in the world!
