Lead batteries may be a 160-year-old proven technology, but their unlocked potential is drawing new interest from college student young scientists. That includes Julian Kosacki, who is completing his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), Rolla, Mo.
His research was just awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Energy. DOE’s Basic Energy Science (BES) office granted Kosacki a graduate scholarship to support his advanced research into developing the next generation of innovative lead batteries at Argonne National Laboratory.
