David Reber, PhD student at EMPA (Materials for Energy Conversion), whose research is on aqueous electrolytes for highvoltage aqueous batteries and supercapacitors in the materials for energy. He is planning to orally present his work “A HighVoltage Aqueous Electrolyte for Sodium-Ion Batteries” and post his other work “High-voltage Aqueous Supercapacitors Based on NaTFSI” at the 233rd Electrochemical Society Meeting (13–17 May 2018, Seattle, WA, USA). The award consists of 500 Swiss Francs towards attending this conference.
Maher Abujelala, PhD student at University of Texas at Arlington, whose main research is in the field of human-computer interaction.
