David Xiulei Ji

Assistant Professor, Oregon State University


Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing


David obtained his B.Sc. degree from Jilin University, China in 2003. From 2004 to 2010, David worked with Professor Linda F. Nazar at the University of Waterloo, Canada for his Master and Ph.D. degrees. He studied nanoporous materials and their applications in energy storage and conversion, including Li-ion batteries, and fuel cell catalysts. In 2010, David won the Innovation Challenge Award from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). He was also awarded the NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship, and he joined the laboratory of Professor Galen D. Stucky at the University of California, Santa Barbara. At UCSB, David focused on electrochemistry and material assembly.

In September 2012, David started his own Materials Electrochemistry Laboratory at Oregon State University. His research interests include increasing energy density and power density of energy storage devices for transportation purposes by innovative methods, and tailor-designed materials, large scale manufacturing of nanostructured materials, and surface manipulation on functional materials.
