Paul Albertus

Dr. Paul Albertus joins MEI2 from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), where he was program director and helped initiate $100 million of funding towards new research projects, most of them electrochemical technologies.

Albertus completed his B.S.E. at the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, both in chemical engineering. Prior to ARPA-E, he worked at Bosch Research where, along with carrying out battery research, he helped set up the Bosch Energy Research Network, which provides energy-related research grants to universities and internships to students. His research interests include energy storage for transportation and stationary applications, energy conversion, and energy materials, with applications including lithium metal batteries, flow batteries, and electrolysis of water to form hydrogen and oxygen.
