PhD Materials Science and Engineering, MIT
Current Position: Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Cornell University
Jin Suntivich is a material scientist interested in understanding surface-molecule interaction from materials science's structure-property relation principles and how such understanding can lead to a rational design of novel energy conversion and storage materials.
Jin received a BA in integrated science and BS in materials science and engineering from Northwestern University in 2006, and a PhD in materials science and engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012. His PhD research focused on finding a structure-property relation that controls the electrochemical activity of transition metal oxides and nanoparticles for applications in fuel cells and metal-air batteries.
As an Environmental Fellow, Jin worked with Eric Mazur of the Department of Physics and the School of Engineering and Applied Physics to control semiconductor materials for light-to-fuel conversion. His work also explored the spectroscopies of surface-molecule interaction.
