Kimberly Scott, a 4th-year graduate student in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Rutgers University is working on battery research in the laboratory of Professor Glenn Amatucci. Her dissertation research on the Utilization of Electrodeposition for the Fabrication of Heterogeneous Electrodes for Lithium Ion Batteries focuses on the optimization of the alloy: copper-tin. In her fabrication process, she designed a new electrodepositing technique that can be up-scaled for industry in mass production that is different from all previously used electrodeposition processes.
Kim also recently traveled to the Centre for Scientific and Industrial Resesarch in Pretoria, South Africa to present her research at the 13th Topical Meeting of the International Society for Electrochemistry. Kim is also a participant in the Bartle Elementary School 3rd Grade Energy and Electricity Workshops (pictured above), now in its third year.
