Jun Lu: Winner of the ChemSocRev Pioneering Investigator Lectureship 2020!

On behalf of the ChemSocRev Editorial Board, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2020 ChemSocRev Pioneering Investigator Lectureship – Dr Jun Lu (Argonne National Laboratory)! Our warmest congratulations to Jun!

Jun Lu earned his Bachelor degree in Chemistry Physics from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2000. He completed his Ph.D. in 2009 from the Department of Metallurgical Engineering at University of Utah under the supervision of Prof. Zak Fang with a major research project on metal hydrides for reversible hydrogen storage application. He then worked as a post-doctorate under a DOE-EERE postdoctoral fellowship (Vehicles Technology Program (2011-2013)) at Argonne National Laboratory with Dr. Khalil Amine, before being promoted to his current position as a chemist (staff scientist) at Argonne National Laboratory.

His research interests encompass electrochemical energy storage and conversion technology, with his main focus on beyond Li-ion battery technologies. Dr. Lu was elected as associate president and board committee member of the International Academy of Electrochemical Energy Science (IAOEES) in 2016.
