SE-MAT International Meeting 2021
Smartly Engineered Materials for Energy and Environment
August 8-9, 2021
SE-MAT is pleased to announce that we are hosting the first Annual International Meeting on Smartly Engineered Materials for Energy and Environment to bring together eminent professors, scientists, and industry parties to share their innovative research and technology and address the current scientific issues.
SE-MAT is planning to hold this event every year to help bring together researchers from academia, industry, research institutions, and national laboratories from a wide range of fields in chemistry, materials engineering, and chemical engineering from the USA, Europe, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, and around the world.
Each meeting will have a different theme, and the 2021 meeting will focus on smartly designed materials for energy and environmental applications.
Professor Ju Li
Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering and
Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT.
Ju Li has held faculty positions at the Ohio State University, the University of Pennsylvania and is presently a chaired professor at MIT. His group (http://Li.mit.edu) investigates the mechanical, electrochemical, and transport behaviors of materials as well as novel means of energy storage and conversion. Ju is a recipient of the 2005 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the 2006 Materials Research Society Outstanding Young Investigator Award, and the TR35 award from Technological Review. Ju was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2014, a Fellow of the Materials Research Society in 2017 and a Fellow of AAAS in 2020. In 2016 Ju Li co-founded one of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) Low-Carbon Energy Centers, the Center for Materials in Energy and Extreme Environments (CME). Li is the chief organizer of MIT A+B Applied Energy Symposia that aim to develop solutions to global climate change challenges with "A-Action before 2040" and "B-Beyond 2040 technologies ( http://li.mit.edu/ab/20 http://li.mit.edu/ab/19 )
