Dr. Doan-Nguyen was mostly recently a University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellow and Elings Prize Fellow at the California NanoSystems Institute and the Materials Research Laboratory at the University of California, Santa Barbara as well as the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research includes synthesis, in-situ structural characterization, and functional testing of advanced materials for energy storage and conversion. She earned a B.S. in Chemistry and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Yale University and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. She has been recognized by the American Crystallographic Association for her work in powder diffraction and in-situ local structure probes of novel battery materials.
