Ann received a B.S. in Applied Physics from Kettering University in 2009 and PhD in Materials Science from Northwestern University in 2014.
Ann’s graduate work was focused on characterizing the relationship between microstructure and performance in solid oxide fuel cell cathodes which were infiltrated with mixed-ionically and electronically conducting nanoparticles. This information was then used as part of a model to predict the initial and long-term performance of these electrodes and determine the viability of the infiltration method.
Since January 2015, Ann has been working on the 4CU Programme and contributing my expertise in linking materials properties, microstructure, and operating conditions to electrochemical performance, identification of rate-limiting processes, and degradation processes to co-electrolysis.
