What We Do
We innovate next generation flow electrochemical systems with potential to impact society, such as flow batteries and capacitive deionization cells. We explore and study relevant phenomena in the fields of multiphase flow and electrochemical systems, as well as use our insights to develop high performance proof-of-concept devices which store energy or desalinate water. We are actively seeking highly motivated Masters, PhD, and postdoctoral level students who are interested in interdisciplinary and fast-paced research with real-world applications.
Short bio of the lab director
The Laboratory for Energy & Environmental Innovations at the Technion is directed by Prof. Matthew Suss. Matthew obtained his M.Sc. in 2009 and PhD in 2013 in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. From 2010-2013, Matthew was a Lawrence Scholar at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and from 2013 to 2014 a Postdoctoral Associate in Chemical Engineering at MIT.
Currently, Matthew is an Assistant Professor at Technion and a leader in energy science at the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP). Matthew has co-authored 36 submitted or published journal papers, co-inventor on 10 patent applications, and has delivered 10 plenary, keynote or invited lectures at international conferences.
