Diana M. Lutz

Hometown: Richmond, VA
Academic department: Doctoral student, Chemistry
Departmental advisors: Esther Takeuchi, Amy Marschilok, Kenneth Takeuchi

In collaboration with her peers in the Marschilok/Takeuchi group, Lutz is studying the fundamental processes that govern battery performance. Improving our current technology will make electric vehicles a sustainable replacement for combustion engine cars and provide larger scale energy storage for intermittent sources, such as wind and solar. The team’s approach is to obtain a full understanding of these technologies through advanced characterization techniques that can show us what is happening at an atomic and molecular level. She believes this type of insight will guide society to a new, sustainable energy infrastructure.
