We are excited to announce that Anthony Shoji Hall, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, is a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award, which recognizes early stage scholars with high levels of promise and excellence.

Shoji’s research focuses on investigating electrochemically mediated renewable energy reactions and the synthesis of nanomaterials by low temperature processing. His five-year CAREER award will support his project, “Room Temperature Electrochemical Synthesis of Ordered Intermetallic Nanomaterials,” which will examine the phase transformations of low melting point alloys to higher melting point alloys richer in metals that resist oxidation via dealloying. The long-term goal of this work is to enable the design of high-performance ordered intermetallic nanomaterials for next-generation energy conversion devices.

We congratulate Professor Hall on this impressive recognition.


Other Awards in 2021:

Earlier this year, Hall was also named a winner of the Electrochemical Society Toyota Fellowship for 2020-2021. The fellowship is a partnership between the Electrochemical Society and Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) and is in its sixth year of distributing awards. The fellowship program promotes innovative and unconventional technologies derived from electrochemical research like Hall’s. Through the program, ECS and Toyota aim to promote and support young professors and scholars in their pursuit of developing innovative green energy technology through electrochemical research.

Congratulations, Shoji!
