Presenter: Jung-Hyun Kim, Senior Researcher, Global R&D Center, General Motors

Topic: "Advanced Functional Materials, Interfaces and Systems Designs for Automotive Lithium-Ion Batteries"

Description: Recent research and development efforts have been devoted to finding the next generation of cathode materials for lithium ion batteries to extend the driving distance of EVs and lower their cost. This presentation will provide the advantages, challenges and effective solutions to adopting LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) high-voltage positive electrodes for EVs.

About the Speaker: Jung-Hyun Kim received his doctoral degree in materials science and engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2009, working with Professor Arumugam Manthiram. He was subsequently a postdoctoral associate at the Spallation Neutron Source in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2010. His multidisciplinary research experience encompasses a wide range of energy-related topics, including inorganic and organic materials for batteries, fuel cells and gas-permeation membranes. His work has resulted in 52 peer-reviewed journal publications – which have been cited more than 2,600 times (according to Google Scholar) – and the filing of four patent applications.
