Author: ChemViews

Professor Clare P. Grey, University of Cambridge, UK, has been awarded the Arfvedson–Schlenk Prize by the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCH, German Chemical Society) and Rockwood Lithium, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The award recognizes achievements in the area of lithium chemistry. It was presented at the GDCh Wissenschaftsforum 2015 in Dresden, Germany, on August 31, 2015.

Professor Grey’s research focuses on understanding how different electrode materials function in energy-storage and conversion devices such as batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells, as well as NMR-based methods for probing structure and dynamics.

Clare P. Grey
received her Ph.D. in chemistry under the supervision of Anthony K. Cheetham from the University of Oxford, UK, in 1991, and was a postdoctoral fellow with Wiebren S. Veeman at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands, in 1991 and 1992. She joined the faculty at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, NY, USA, in 1994. She was made Geoffrey Moorhouse Gibson Professor in Materials Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2009, and Adjunct Professor at Stony Brook in 2015.

Among many other honors, Professor Grey has received the DuPont Young Professor Award in 1997, the Research Award of the Battery Division of the Electrochemical Society in 2007, the RS Kavli Medal and Lecture in 2011, and the Davy Prize from the Royal Society in 2014.
