Batteries and energy storage
Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment
Kelsey Hatzell is an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering. Her research focuses on emerging decarbonization technologies for transportation, fuels, and direct air capture applications. Over the last several years, Hatzell has conducted much of the research that underpins what the world knows about solid-state batteries today, developing techniques to probe batteries with solid electrolytes, which have historically been difficult to both visualize and understand. Her group is creating battery diagnostic tools to better understand how batteries degrade. She also works on other forms of energy storage, including thermal energy storage.
