Litster Receives NSF Career Award
Congratulations to Assistant Professor Shawn Litster on receiving the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. The CAREER Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.
Prof. Litster's proposal, "Micro-structured scaffolds for through-plane porous electrode diagnostics and design," plans to establish micron-scale in situ analysis of porous electrodes using micro-structured electrode scaffold (MES) diagnostics and to apply them in advancing the science and engineering of fuel cell and battery electrodes.
