Yang Shao-Horn is W.M. Keck Professor of Energy at MIT and the first female winner of this prestigious medal. Her research is centered on exploiting chemical/materials physics and physical/materials chemistry principles at interface and in bulk to design materials/processes and control the kinetics of (electro)chemical reactions including lithium ion storage and making of sustainable fuels such as water splitting and CO2 reduction, critical for the deployment of clean energy technologies. Professor Shao-Horn is a member of National Academy of Engineering and is among the World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds and Highly Cited Researchers (Thomson Reuters) based on over 250 archival journal papers and over 200 lectures.
