The TomKat Center has awarded three new Postdoctoral Fellowships in Sustainable Energy and Sustainability. This year’s cohort will be advancing research in soil carbon management, resource recovery from wastewater, and nanomaterial designs for energy-harnessing applications.
“We are excited to have these scholars join the Stanford community,” said Professor Jen Dionne, co-director of the TomKat Center with Professor Matt Kanan. “Their efforts will develop innovative new solutions to sustainability challenges, while building collaborations across campus.” The fellows were selected through a global competition and championed by their Stanford faculty mentors because of their academic and research excellence. Kanan is equally enthusiastic about the cohort, “Supporting inspired and creative early-career researchers is critical for creating new ways to address the global challenges we face from rising energy demand and climate change. The fellows have exciting research plans with the potential to impact some very important problems.”
TomKat Center Postdoctoral Fellowships provide researchers with two years of funding to pursue scientific inquiry in sustainable energy and its intersection with food, water, transportation, human health, and the environment. Since the program began in 2016, it has supported 16 fellows.
