In a new video series, PNNL is highlighting six scientific and technical experts in the national security domain throughout the fall. Each was promoted to scientist and engineer Level 5, one of PNNL’s most senior research roles.
PNNL and Oklahoma State University join forces to understand the chemistry of sodium-ion and potassium-ion batteries thanks to an award from the U.S. Department of Energy's Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
Jonathan Male originally joined PNNL in 2006 as a scientist focused on catalysis. After more than seven years leading DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office, he's back at PNNL as a chief scientist in the Energy Processes & Materials Division.
His research is dedicated to the development of experimental tools and expertise critical for controlled synthesis and characterization of complex oxides, and gaining deep understanding of structure-composition-function relationships.
PNNL materials scientist Kevin Simmons is part of a collaboration that was recognized for work in hydrogen safety, codes and standards recently at the DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program annual merit review and peer evaluation.
