As director of Columbia’s newest research arm, the Columbia Electrochemical Energy Center, Alan West leads a team developing batteries that can store solar and wind-powered energy.
The award will support the development of new methods that will allow for the manipulation of material systems in real time and the mapping of behavior of these materials with a degree of precision that has not been possible.
