Jin Suntivich appointed as Assistant Professor with MS&E
We are pleased to announce that Jin Suntivich will join the Cornell MS&E department after a one-year, post doctoral stint at Harvard.
Jin is a graduate student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His thesis comprises how to design low-cost, abundant materials to catalyze energy conversion reactions, which generally require expensive precious metal catalysts. He has multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals and two patents in the field of catalysis engineering. He is currently a Chesonis Foundation Fellow and is working under the supervision of Professor Yang Shao-horn (MIT), and Professor Hubert Gasteiger (Technical University of Munich, Germany). As a graduate student, he had co-founded a company in the field of clean-tech and had served as a Energy writer for MIT Entrepreneurship Review. Next year, he will serve as Environmental Fellow at Harvard, where he will carry out research in light-matter interaction under the guidance of Professor Eric Mazur (Harvard).
