We are delighted to announce that Professor David Lou been selected by the EES Editorial Board as the winner of the 2017 “Energy & Environmental Science Readers’ Choice Lectureship”.
The Lectureship is awarded annually to one outstanding young scientist (within 10 years of receiving their PhD) who has published in the journal. The winner is selected by the EES Editorial Board from a shortlist of authors of the most-read articles from each issue of EES in the previous year; three of Professor Lou’s 2016 articles were shortlisted.
Professor David Lou received his BEng (1st class honors, 2002) and MEng (2004) degrees from the National University of Singapore. He obtained his PhD degree in chemical engineering from Cornell University in 2008. Right after graduation, he joined Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor in September 2013, and Full Professor in September 2015. He has published ~272 papers with >42,500 citations, and has an H-index of 122 as of December 2017. His research interests are focused on designed synthesis of nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy conversion and storage and photo/electrocatalysis. He is an Associate Editor for Journal of Materials Chemistry A.
Professor Lou will give his award lecture at an international energy conference in 2018 and is invited to contribute a Review article to EES.
