We are delighted to announce that Professor Maria Lukatskaya has been selected by the EES Editorial Board as the winner of the 2019 EES Lectureship.
The Lectureship is awarded annually to one outstanding young scientist (within 10 years of receiving their PhD) who has published in the journal in the past 3 years. The winner is selected by the EES Editorial Board from a shortlist of authors nominated by the EES community.
Professor Maria Lukatskaya began her Tenure Track Assistant Professorship of Electrochemical Energy Systems at ETH Zürich in 2019. She received her PhD from Drexel University (2015) and went on to carry out postdoctoral research at Stanford University (2016-2018) and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (2018-2019). Maria Lukatskaya works in the areas of new materials and electrolytes for energy storage and conversion, as well as in electrochemistry, material synthesis and material characterisation.
