About the Speaker:
Dr. Trahey received her B.S. in Chemistry with a minor in Science, Technology, and Society from Syracuse University. She received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 2007. There her research (in the group of Prof. Angelica Stacy) focused on thermoelectric nanowire synthesis and characterization. After a joint postdoctoral appointment at Northwestern University (under Prof. Harold H. Kung) and Argonne National Laboratory (under Dr. Michael M. Thackeray), Lynn transitioned to become a staff scientist in the Electrochemical Energy Storage group at Argonne. Lynn conducts materials research in a number of areas, with specialties in electrodeposition, porous alumina synthesis, and intermetallic anodes for Li-ion batteries.
