On Thursday, March 12th, the MIT Sidney Pacific / Presidential Fellows Distinguished Lecture Series presents: Electrochemical Pathways Towards Sustainability, featuring Professor Donald R. Sadoway. In this talk, Professor Sadoway will share his research on electrochemical pathways towards sustainability, as well as his insights into science as a service to society and how to make the world a better place through innovation. Sadoway is the current John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry at MIT. Professor Sadoway’s research seeks to establish the scientific underpinnings for technologies that make efficient use of energy and natural resources in an environmentally sound manner. This spans engineering applications and the supportive fundamental science. In 2010, Professor Sadoway co-founded Ambri, which utilizes liquid metal battery to provide electricity storage solution that will change the way electric grids are operated worldwide, and is currently serving as its chief scientific advisor. In 2012, he was named one of Time magazine’s “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” for his continuing work in improved batteries. This lecture will take place in the Mark Multipurpose Room of the MIT Sidney Pacific Graduate Residence (70 Pacific Street, Cambridge), with refreshments to be served at 6 pm, followed by the lecture at 6:30.
