Prof. Lynden Archer, from Cornell University, visited our lab today. He gave an IRCE2 Lecture named Electrodeposition of Reactive Metals in Structured Electrolytes: Electrokinetics and Stability.
Lynden Archer is the James A Friend Family Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Director of the Cornell Energy Systems Institute. His research focuses on transport properties of polymer/particle hybrids, and their applications for electrochemical energy storage. Archer received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Stanford University in 1993 and was a Postdoctoral Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1994. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). His research contributions have also been recognized with various awards, including the AICHE Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum award, the National Science Foundation award for Special Creativity, a NSF Distinguished Lectureship in Mathematical & Physical Sciences, the American Institute of Chemical Engineer’s MAC Centeniell Engineer award, and the Thompson-Reuters World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds in Materials Science for 2014 & 2015. At Cornell, he has been recognized with the James & Mary Tien Excellence in Teaching Award and thrice with the Merrill Presidential award as the most influential member of the Cornell faculty selected by a Merrill Presidential Scholar awardee. He previously served as Director of the School of Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering from January 1, 2010 to June 30, 2016 and Deputy Editor of the AAAS journal Science Advances from 2016-present.
