David Go, associate professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, has been named one of the three inaugural ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellows by the Electrochemical Society and Toyota North America.
Part of their Green Energy Technology partnership, the program seeks to recognize and encourage young professors to pursue research in green energy technology, specifically those areas that challenge the automotive industry: finding a viable alternative energy source as a replacement for oil, reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and preventing air pollution. The successful candidates are under 40 years of age and working in North America; they also are working on original research that explores unique innovative or unconventional approaches to green energy.
In addition to a grant of at least $50,000, the winners are granted a one-year membership to the Electrochemical Society.
