Dr. Jay Switzer, the Donald L. Castleman/Foundation for Chemical Research Professor of Discovery and Curators’ Distinguished Professor of chemistry, has been selected as a fellow of the Electrochemical Society (ECS). He will be formally recognized during the plenary session of the 234th ECS Meeting in Cancun in October.
ECS inducts a maximum of 15 distinguished members as fellows annually. The mark of high distinction is conferred by peers to recognize scientific achievement.
Switzer joined Missouri S&T in 1990 as professor of chemistry and senior investigator. He works in the areas of inorganic materials chemistry, electrochemistry, nanoscale materials, environmental chemistry, energy conversion and storage. He has dedicated his research to the electrodeposition of nanostructured metal oxide ceramics such as semiconductors, magnetic materials and catalysts with a goal to exploit the wet aspects of electrodeposition to produce architectures which may not be accessible to UHV methods.
The ECS is a U.S.-based professional association that supports scientific inquiry in electrochemistry and solid-state science and technology. ECS’s global membership comprises over 8,000 scientists and engineers and 100 corporations and laboratories.
