Recognition for work developing battery technologies for next-gen energy storage

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) has awarded the Australian Synchrotron Research Award for early career researchers to Dr Wei Kong Pang from UOW.

The Australian Synchrotron Research Award is awarded by ANSTO every year to an emerging leader in synchrotron research with less than 10 years of post-PhD experience.

Dr Pang is an ARC Future Fellow and Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) at UOW.

His research focuses on understanding and developing rechargeable metal-ion battery technologies, including the atomic-scale characterisation of electrode materials.

“I am excited to receive the Australian Synchrotron Research Award for my work. I would not have been able to achieve this recognition without the great support of ANSTO, ISEM and UOW,” Dr Pang said.

“For me, the award is a reward for work well done, and encouragement for doing more.

“Mechanistic studies offer an in-depth understanding of battery materials, with the application of synchrotron techniques playing an important role and allowing rational improvement, stimulating the development of next-generation energy storage.”
