Two junior faculty members in the Swanson School of Engineering were among a class of 58 early career researchers recognized for their nascent research in energy storage.

James McKone  and Christopher Wilmer, both assistant professors of chemical and petroleum engineering, along with their peers were honored as new Fellows at the first Scialog: Advanced Energy Storage meeting in Tucson, Arizona, in November, hosted by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement.

According to Scialog, these rising stars participated in intensive discussions aimed at developing proposals for seed funding of transformative energy storage systems and novel research ideas to improve efficiencies in advanced batteries, supercapacitors and related systems.
