Anthony Shoji Hall

Anthony Shoji Hall, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been named a recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award, which recognizes early stage scholars with high levels of promise and excellence.

Hall’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.
