Summer internships are go!
We’re excited to welcome a new cohort of interns. The CCNY-Northeastern Student Exchange welcomes Grace O’Dwyer of Northeastern University and Frankie Modell and Joe McManus of CCNY to the project. Also joining the Center is Philipp Jean-Baptiste, who will be working on a project with one of our graduate researchers, Brendan Hawkins.
Lockdown lab reno.
During the pandemic campus is closed and the labs are pretty quiet. Not one to waste an opportunity, Professor Messinger is taking this time to renovate the Electrochemical Materials & Devices Laboratory (aka “The Garage”). Stay tuned for pictures and updates!
The Center's first intern!
We’re excited to welcome Daniel Salazar, a Sophomore from Northeastern University!
Ph.D.'s join the team.
The Center is proud to welcome Zeeshan Chaudhry and Brendan Hawkins to the team. Zeeshan is in his 1st year of graduate studies focusing on characterizing and the Zn-electrode in alkaline media, and diagnosing the issues associated with its performance in electrochemical systems. Brendan is in his 4th year and working on developing battery electrodes for spacecraft and robotic landers with high energy density and long cycle life that operate in extreme conditions. Brendan is slated to be our first Doctoral Intern at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Our first hire.
Marking the start of official Center activities, the center hired a Project Coordinator to handle all of the nitty-gritty, administrative work . . . like the website. Welcome Sumer Mishue to the team!
Permission for liftoff!
The City College of New York is partnering with NASA on future space exploration missions after winning a $3 million three-year grant from the agency to develop advanced batteries for robotic spacecraft that will excel under the extreme temperatures and radiation of outer space. The funding from NASA’s MUREP Institutional Research Opportunity (MIRO) will establish the NASA-CCNY Center for Advanced Batteries for Space at CCNY in collaboration with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) and Northeastern University.
