Veronica Augustyn is an Associate Professor of Materials Science & Engineering and a University Faculty Scholar at North Carolina State University. From 2013 – 2015, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin with Prof. Arumugam Manthiram. She received her Ph.D. (2013) from the University of California, Los Angeles working with Prof. Bruce Dunn. Her research group focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of materials for electrochemical energy technologies including batteries, electrochemical capacitors, electrolyzers, and fuel cells. In particular, she is interested in the relationships between material structure, composition, and morphology, and the resulting electrochemical mechanisms. She also leads an award-winning international project at NC State, SciBridge, which develops renewable energy research and education collaborations between universities in Africa and the U.S. Her research group has been recognized with a 2019 Sloan Fellowship in Chemistry, a 2019 DOE Early Career Award, and a 2017 NSF CAREER Award. In 2021, she was recognized by NC State as a Goodnight Early Career Innovator and received the George H. Blessis Advising Award for her mentorship of undergraduate students.
