Prof. Amanda Morris Earns Major NSF Instrumentation Award
(August 2015) Prof. Amanda Morris is the lead PI on a new multi-investigator award (including Chemistry professors John Morris and Lou Madsen) entitled “MRI: Acquisition of an X-ray Photoelectron Spectrometer for the Development of Materials and Catalysts for Next Generation Energy Solutions.” This $788,360 National Science Foundation award leverages the expertise of PIs and senior personnel from across multiple disciplines to explore emerging energy technologies, which will significantly improve our understanding of the effects of surface chemistry on efficacy. This award will advance research and education at all levels to explore energy solutions (e.g., energy storage and generation), thereby solidifying VT as a leader in the energy field.
