University of Connecticut, Assistant Professor
USA/Canada / Storrs/Vancouver

I have spent more than 20 years in the clean energy sector. My PhD is from the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada, where I worked for 7 years in Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation, a joint venture of Ford and Daimler. Since 2018 I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut, US, where my research focus is in clean energy, advanced characterization of fuel cells, electrolyzers and batteries, and nature inspired design of materials. I am also a mother of three amazing kids, who are also passionate about making this world a better place.
