We took a new group photo yesterday, for the front page of the website. Matt Kim was inexplicably wearing a tee shirt that said “Gallaway Group.” I asked where he got it and he said “they were handing them out.”
I’m giving a talk at the next ECS meeting in New Orleans, titled An Operando Study of Deep-Cycling MnO2 Cathodes for Low Cost, High Energy Density Aqueous Batteries. It’s in the Aqueous Systems session, on Tuesday May 30th at 2:00 PM. Location: Grand Salon B – Section 12 (Hilton New Orleans Riverside). Come say hi if you’re there.
We have a new paper coming out shortly, which already has a press release from CCNY. It features a picture of Gautam Yadav, the battery master who is the paper’s lead author, and I can’t get over the fact he’s clean shaven in the picture. Here is bearded Gautam in his natural habitat a few months ago, testing out a battery we made for in situ experiments at NSLS-II.
