The Zawodzinski Group in UT’s College of Engineering has established itself as a prominent player for research into and development of electrochemical energy systems.
Batteries, fuel cells, and membranes are a few of the areas taking leaps forward thanks to the group, led by Tom Zawodzinski, joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Electrical Energy Conversion and Storage.
For these contributions and others in chemical engineering, Zawodzinski himself has earned one of the highest honors in his field—being named a fellow of the American Chemical Society’s Polymer Science Division.
“It’s certainly a wonderful honor, but more than that it reflects that we are doing things the right way,” said Zawodzinski, who also serves as a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
