Dr. Vikas Prakash, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at CWRU and affiliated faculty of GLEI, was featured in a New Atlas article discussing the future of autonomous electric flying vehicles. Prakash was recently awarded a $1.3 million grant under the Partnership for Research in Energy Storage and Integration for Defense and Space Exploration (PRESIDES) in order to develop batteries capable of powering electric flight vehicles, and has no doubt that flying taxis are just a few years away.

GLEI sponsored faculty member Michael Hore and Jon Pokorski, both assistant professors of macromolecular science and engineering, have received Young Investigator awards from the American Chemical Society’s Polymer Materials Science and Engineering Division (PMSE).
 

GLEI is looking for an experienced program manager to oversee major projects and department finances. The program manager works closely with faculty, students, and industry partners to expand energy education on campus and ensure the success of our large research projects. If you are excited by learning about new technologies, inspiring our future energy leaders, and building longstanding relationships, join our team!
