Ahmet Kusoglu is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Electrochemical Technologies group working on fundamental understanding of polymer materials for electrochemical energy devices. Ahmet hold B.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, the latter of which was received from University of Delaware, where he studied the mechanical characterization and durability of ionomer membranes and earned a graduate fellowship award. His current research involves modeling the degradation and failure mechanisms, transport phenomena and structure/function/performance relationships in ion-conducting polymers and thin films, as well as their structural characterization through X-Ray Scattering techniques.
