NIW EB-2 Approval for Chemical and Energy Systems Researcher – Lithium-ion batteries and Hydrogen fuel cells

We recently received a National Interest Waiver (NIW) I-140 approval for a Chemical and Energy Systems Researcher whose research focuses on both identifying the causes of catastrophic failure of lithium ion batteries as well as the use of in-situ thermal characterization techniques to help identify and remediate unfavorable thermal features within hydrogen fuel cells.

This scientist has made a significant impact in the area of battery diagnostics and safety.

Lithium ion batteries are ubiquitous in today’s society, being used in applications from portable electronics, to electric vehicles, aerospace, and defense. However, one of the primary factors that limit their widespread use is their safety.

Recent high-profile battery failures such as the Samsung Note 7 battery failure and the Boeing Dreamliner battery failures are demonstrative of the associated risk of using lithium ion batteries, where both incidents risked lives and are expected to have cost more than $5 billion.

Lithium-ion batteries are one of the transformative technologies of the 21st century, now powering devices ranging from portable electronics, to electric vehicles and aerospace power systems. Yet, the standard of safety and performance do not meet the needs of such demanding applications.

Hydrogen fuel cells are one of the most promising alternatives to the gasoline combustions engines, In particular, polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are the power source of choice for automotive applications.

The application we prepared detailed how the candidate is innovator and key contributor in the field of battery safety science.

He has proven his value through numerous publications and presentations.

In his limited career, he has already developed a national and international reputation for researching the safety of lithium-ion cells.

Additionally, he has made an impact with many of our outside partners – NASA, Apple, LG, and Tesla.  he is a dedicated researcher focused on improving the safety of lithium ion cells whether for consumer applications or for those used in space.
