HEMI is pleased to announce that HEMI Fellow Anthony Shoji Hall, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and principal investigator at the Hall Research Group, has been selected to receive an Early CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation!
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 plans to 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.
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is one of the NSF’s most prestigious awards. It recognizes early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as role models in education, research, and leadership.
