Jack Vaughey is a Senior Scientist in the Electrochemical Energy Storage Group at Argonne National Laboratory. During this time, he has been a leader in the design, discovery, and evaluation of energy storage materials. His work includes discovery of energy dense intermetallic insertion anodes, lithium-rich NMC cathodes, new medical batteries, and development of porous and surface modified silicon materials to increase cycle life. Since 2012 he has been group leader of the Interfacial Chemistry Group in the Chemical Sciences and Engineering (CSE) Division. The group focuses on MAS-NMR, transport phenomena, new materials, and battery recycling processes. He co-authored the DOE Innovation Hub JCESR proposal, leading the JCESR science writing effort and has lead next generation cathode development, grid storage, including materials discovery for non-aqueous organic flow batteries, solid electrolytes, and silicon-based anode materials.
