Biography

Dr. Zhang is a Chief Scientist on Battery Technology in the Energy & Efficiency Division at PNNL. He is the PI on PNNL’s efforts on Energy Storage for Transportation supported by the DOE/EERE/OVT office and PNNL’s Transformation Materials Science Initiative. He has 19 years experience in the development of energy storage devices, including lithium-ion batteries; thin-film, solid-state batteries; lithium-air batteries, and electrochromic devices. Prior to joining PNNL in June 2007, he served for seven years as Chief Technology Officer of Excellatron Solid State LLC in Atlanta, Georgia. His responsibilities at Excellatron included strategic planning, identification of R&D direction, review of all internal programs, funding allocation for internal programs, and oversight of all subcontractor programs. He was also responsible for day-to-day performance of the technical team for development of thin-film lithium batteries and other energy related products. From 1998 to 2000, he served as the Director of Product Development at Macro Energy-Tech, Inc. in Redondo Beach, California, where he was responsible for setting up a pilot line for production of polymer lithium-ion batteries. Prior to that, from 1990 to 1998, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow/Staff Scientist/Senior Scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory where he managed several lithium-ion-battery related projects. Dr. Zhang holds ten patents (with another five patents pending) and has more than 60 papers published in professional journals.
