Veronica Augustyn

Jake & Jennifer Hooks Distinguished Scholar

Professor Veronica Augustyn is the Jake and Jennifer Hooks Distinguished Scholar in Materials Science and Engineering, a University Faculty Scholar, and an Associate Professor. She is also an Associate Editor for the Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Materials Advances. Her research group focuses on the synthesis and characterization of materials for electrochemical energy and environmental technologies, including batteries, electrochemical capacitors, electrolyzers, and fuel cells. She is interested in the relationships between material composition, structure, and morphology and the resulting electrochemical mechanisms. Her research involves the use of liquid phase and solid state synthesis methods and a variety of in situ and operando electrochemical techniques. She is the faculty advisor of an award-winning international project at NC State, SciBridge, which develops renewable energy research and education collaborations between universities in Africa and the U.S.
