Chibueze Amanchukwu is a Neubauer Family Assistant Professor in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago, and holds a joint appointment at Argonne National Laboratory. His research involves the design, synthesis, and understanding of ion transport in electrolytes for batteries and electrocatalytic applications. His team is especially interested in correlating bulk solvation properties to electrochemical interfacial phenomena, and they use data science tools coupled with synthesis and novel characterization approaches to answer these questions. He obtained his PhD in chemical engineering as a NDSEG Fellow at MIT and was a TomKat Center Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University.
