Jung-Hyun Kim, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) was awarded the College of Engineering’s Lumley Research Award for his work focusing on energy storage materials and systems to support global transition towards renewable energy.

This award is presented annually and recognizes faculty who have demonstrated significant research contributions and productivity over the last five years.

“The knowledge generated by his research contributes to advancing our understanding on complex chemomechanical reaction mechanisms of high-energy electrode materials,” said MAE Professor and Chair, Jim Gregory. “In addition to building the academic knowledge, the technologies Dr. Kim developed have been transferred to industry and successfully demonstrating their real-world benefits.”

According to his award nomination, Kim’s research has also had a broad impact on STEM education through various high school and college outreach initiatives he has participated in.

“It is great encouragement for me to be recognized by my early research career at Ohio State,” said Kim. “Due to the interdisciplinary nature of energy-storage research, I have focused on building a strong research team together with many wonderful colleagues at Ohio State and with external partners. This award would not be possible without supports from my colleagues in the MAE department, Center for Automotive Research and Institute for Materials Research.”
