Project: Fast Charging, Longer Distance Batteries for Electric Vehicles

Christopher Passolano is a doctoral candidate in Materials Science and Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). His primary goals are conservation and improved energy storage. He focused on high performance rechargeable batteries because they are the foundational technology that will play a critical role for the success of several emerging industries such as electric vehicles, electric aircraft (particularly electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft), and commercial drones.
