Nano@Wayne Seminar with Mark Verbrugge, General Motors
December 9 2014 at 2:30 PM
Welcome Center Auditorium
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Nano@Wayne Seminar on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at Wayne State University's Welcome Center Auditorium. The guest presenter will be Mark Verburgge from General Motors Research and Development. He will present,"Global Trends in Vehicle Electrification and Baterry Materials."A reception will immediately follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The seminar is free; registration is requested. Bio: Mark Verbrugge is the director of GM’s Chemical and Materials Systems Laboratory, which maintains global research programs—enabled by the disciplines of chemistry, physics, and materials science—and targets the advanced development of structural subsystems, energy storage and conversion devices, and various technologies associated with fuels, lubricants, and emissions. He is a board member of the United States Automotive Materials Partnership LLC and the United States Advanced Battery Consortium LLC. He has received a number of GM internal awards as well as external awards including the Norman Hackerman Young Author Award and the Energy Technology Award from the Electrochemical Society, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the United States Council for Automotive Research. He is a fellow of the Electrochemical Society and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Abstract:  Vehicle electrification is a primary theme in personal transportation. The degree of increased electrification ranges from 12 V start-stop systems to pure battery electric vehicles. In this talk, we highlight the drivers for these trends and current vehicle products. We shall discuss recent technical work associated with the estimation of lithium ion cell life, commensurate with high-energy batteries. Of particular note is the emergence of core-shell structures, which allow electrode designers to (a) place high capacity materials within the core of active particles, and (b) select protective shell materials, usually on the order of nanometers in thickness, to stabilize such systems. This arrangement leads to a central question: under what conditions are the protective (outer shell) materials compromised? In our attempts to answer this question, we develop approaches to understand how thermodynamics, lithium diffusion, side reactions including lithium consumption and solvent reduction, and particle fracture influence cell life.

Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals (NSF-Focused)
March 4 2015 at 1:30 PM
Welcome Center
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer this research career development award writing seminar for WSU faculty, post-docs, and space permitting, advanced doctoral students on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. The OVPR is sponsoring a major portion of the cost to bring Grant Writers’ Seminars and Workshops to campus to conduct this seminar presented by Dr. Peg AtKisson. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar.   The purpose of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award is to create teacher-scholars – faculty members who will use their research to attract and motivate students to learn better. It is a very prestigious award.  Acquisition of a CAREER Award is particularly distinguishing in the developing career of an assistant professor, which is why so many apply for it – most without success. The principal reason for failure is lack of understanding of what NSF is trying to accomplish with the award, i.e., the purpose of the award, which is what this seminar teaches. Seminar information Write Successful NSF CAREER Award Proposals (NSF-focused) March 4, 2015 – 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren Registration deadline: February 20, 2015   The fee for seminar is $50 and may be paid by personal check or through a department index account transfer. Payment or index information must be received prior to the seminar to reserve your spot.   Registration is limited! Registration and requested information needs to be completed by February 20, 2015. Attendance at a Write Winning Grants seminar previously hosted by OVPR is a pre-requisite for this seminar.
