Dr. Hui (Claire) Xiong joined the faculty of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Boise State University in 2012. Her current research interests focus on the synthesis, characterization and development of advanced functional nanomaterials for sustainable energy systems.
She came to Boise after a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory, where she worked on the development of novel nano-architectured electrode materials for energy storage and conversion. Dr. Xiong also spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) in Harvard University where her research involved electrochemical characterization of micro-fabricated cathode materials for micro-solid oxide fuel cells. Her education includes a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry and Electrochemistry from the University of Pittsburgh, and a B.E. in Applied Chemistry and an M.S. in Inorganic Chemistry, both from East China University of Science and Technology in Shanghai.
