Veronica Augustyn

Assistant Professor

Prof. Augustyn is an Assistant Professor in Materials Science and Engineering. Her research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of materials for electrochemical energy technologies including batteries, electrochemical capacitors, electrolyzers, and fuel cells. Her research involves the use of both liquid phase and solid state synthesis methods and a variety of in situ and in operando electrochemical techniques. She also leads an award-winning international project at NC State, SciBridge, which develops renewable energy research and education collaborations between universities in Africa and the U.S.
