Bio: 
Fudong Han is an assistant professor and Priti and Mukesh Chatter '82 Career Development Chair in Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering. He received his BS degree in 2009 and his MS degree in 2012 in Materials Science and Engineering from Shandong University in China, and his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Maryland College Park where he also did one-year postdoctoral research. He was a guest scientist in the Materials for Energy and Sustainable Development Group at National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST). His research interests include (i) understanding the fundamental science of the interfaces, charge transport, and reactions in and of materials with the aid of advanced characterization techniques, (ii) designing and fabricating new materials with desired properties, and (iii) exploring the applications of these materials in electrochemical energy storage devices such as batteries for clean and safe energy storage. He has published more than 70 papers in scientific journals including Nature Energy, Nature Materials, Nature Chemistry, Nature Review Materials, Nature Communications, Science Advances, Joule, Advanced Materials, Energy and Environmental Science etc. He is a recipient of the 2022 Electrochemical Society Electrodeposition Division Early Career Investigator Award, the 2018 Electrochemical Society Battery Division Student Research Award, and the 2017 Materials Research Society Graduate Student Gold Award. Han research group is always looking for highly motivated undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers in mechanical engineering, materials science, chemical engineering, and electrochemistry to join our group.
