Congraduations to Dr. Natalie Geise for her successful oral defense of her doctoral thesis titled "Quantifying Degradation in Lithium-metal and Lithium-ion Batteries" on September 15 and official graduating from Stanford's Department of Chemistry on November 28, 2021! She is actively searching for her next challenge. In the meantime, she's working as a postdoctoral scholar supporting users on the SSRL scattering beamlines.
We welcomed two visiting graduate students to the group this month. André Navarro de Miranda comes to us from the University of Campinas (Unicamp) in San Paulo, Brazil. He'll be using SSRL's X-rays to continue his work studying electrocatalysts for rechargable Li-air batteries. Our second visiting student is Samuel Welborn who is coming to us from the University of Pennsylvania in Philly.

Congratuations to Jesse Ko, Kelly Bishop, Natalie Seitzman, and Bor-Rong Chen for our most recently published paper titled "Highly Reversible Plating/Stripping of Porous Zinc Anodes for Multivalent Zinc Batteries". Kelly started this work as a summer intern through the SULI program under the supervision of Jesse.
Yechuan (Leo) Chen has joined our group to work on X-ray tomography of multivalent batteries, shale, and anything else worth imaging. WELCOME!
Molleigh Preefer has joined our group to work on X-ray microscopy and imaging of cathode degradation during fast charging of Li ion batteries. WELCOME!
