Congratulations to HEMI Fellow Anthony Shoji Hall, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and principal investigator at the Hall Research Group, for receiving an Electrochemical Society Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship!
Hall’s research group investigates chemical reactions catalyzed by solid surfaces to address problems in renewable energy storage and utilization. His strategy toward the design of high-performance catalysts begins by understanding the surface chemistry of materials through the utilization of thermochemical methods, electro-kinetics and in-situ/ex-situ spectroscopy. Other aspects of his research involve designing new materials with interesting properties by mesostructuring and controlling material composition and understanding charge separation processes at metal/semiconductor interfaces for surface plasmon enhanced photoelectrochemical devices.
The Electrochemical Society Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship is a partnership between the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the Toyota Research Institute, North America (TRI-NA). In its sixth year of awarding fellowships, the partnership supports young professors and scholars to pursue innovative electrochemical research, especially in green energy technology. Fellowship recipients receive a $50,000 grant to conduct the research in their proposals and a one-year complimentary ECS membership. At the end of the fellowship period, Toyota may enter a research agreement with the awardee to continue their research.
