Lithium Dendrites under the Microscope: Morphology and Propensity to Internal Short
by Dr. Corey T. Love

About the speaker
Dr. Corey T. Love is a materials research engineer in the Alternative Energy Section of the Chemistry Division at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington DC. His research focuses on safe implementation of lithium-ion batteries through fundamental materials research and development as well as fault and damage detection diagnostics.

Corey received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California-San Diego in 2008. In 2009 Corey became the Chemistry Division’s first Jerome Karle Research Fellow and began his career as a staff researcher. In 2010 Corey received the Chemistry Division’s Young Investigator Award to pursue independent research in lithium-ion battery safety and the development of battery state-of-health monitoring diagnostics.

Dr. Love has numerous publications in the areas of electrochemical energy storage and corrosion. His work “Impedance Diagnostic for Battery Health Monitoring” was named a NRL Top 20 Accomplishment of 2011.
