Nicola Perry receives J. Bruce Wagner, Jr. Award from the Electrochemical Society
Perry was recognized "for developing an improved understanding of the factors impacting chemical expansion in perovskite-structured materials, of widespread technological significance in both batteries and fuel cell materials, and for creative in situ measurements establishing correlations between the defect and band structures of mixed ionic/electronic conducting oxides, and their transport and optical properties and SOFC electrode oxygen exchange kinetics."
"I am grateful to the Electrochemical Society for this recognition and particularly to the H-TEMP division for their long-standing commitment to fostering scientific excellence and service. I would also like to thank the members of my research team for their contributions to our increased understanding of these important materials," said Perry.
Nicola Perry joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 2018. Her group focuses on understanding and tailoring point-defect mediated properties in oxides. Previously, Perry has been awarded the DOE Early Career Award, IUMRS Award for Encouragement of Research, and Edward C. Henry Award of the American Ceramic Society.
The award honors the career of J. Bruce Wagner, Jr., a distinguished chemistry professor and researcher, who taught at Pennsylvania State University, Yale University, Northwestern University, and at Arizona State University and published more than 100 technical papers. He was an active member of ECS for over forty years and served as President from 1983-1984.
