Grant Williamson

I work to synthesize and test novel nanomaterials for battery applications and other clean energy uses.  I am particularly focused on developing scalable, solution-based syntheses of crystalline, inorganic nanowire-based negative electrodes for lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries.  I am also interested in the interplay between science and policy and how they drive and inform each other.
