Y. Kim's paper selected for Electrochemical Society Conference

EST&P-Applied Studies student, Yoolhee Kim, has been working under Professor Venkat Viswanathan in his Electrochemical Engineering. Yoolhee was recently selected to present her research paper at the 232nd Electrochemical Society Conference (ECS) in National Harbor, MD on October 1, 2017.

The ECS conference focuses on the latest advances in electrochemistry and solid state technology. Her abstract was accepted to the "Beyond Li-Ion materials" section of the conference.

Yoolhee's research topic investigates potassium-air batteries, and the role of magnetism and disorder in tuning the electrochemical properties of the discharge product in these batteries. This battery is around triple the density of current lithium ion batteries, which would mean longer driving ranges for electric vehicles.
