Nora Shaheen

Nora is a first-year PhD student studying Chemical Engineering and has recently graduated from The Ohio State University with an environmental focus in Chemical Engineering. During her time at Ohio State, Nora was involved in researching silica-based heterogeneous catalysts and has completed a number of internships. Her experiences include work with fuel cells at pH Matter and studying redox shuttles for batteries at Michigan State University Organic Energy Storage Lab. Nora is most interested in developing new ways in which alternative energies, like Lithium-ion batteries, can be improved to reduce their environmental impact on regions that supply natural resources, like Lithium. Nora is looking forward to joining ThinkEnergy, where she hopes to learn more about commercialization of existing alternative energy technologies, and investigating methods to make them more sustainable.
