MS&E Student Karl Kreder Takes Top Awards with Research Poster

Texas Materials Institute and the MS&E Graduate Program is proud to announce that Ph.D. candidate Karl Kreder has recently been awarded two first-place awards for the presentation of his research poster, “High Voltage Modified LiCoPO4 for Next Generation Li-Ion Batteries”.

Kreder received first place in the “Renewable Energy and Energy Storage” category at the 2017 UT Energy Week research contest, hosted by the Longhorn Energy Club. UT Energy Week is an annual gathering of experts from academia, industry, government, regulatory agencies and nonprofit organizations, to discuss and debate topical energy issues and recent research findings.

In addition, he placed first in the 2017 GAIN poster session organized by the Graduate Engineering Council (GEC), where all graduate engineering students are able to participate. GAIN (Graduate And Industry Networking) is an annual networking opportunity that allows graduate engineering students to showcase their research and talents to industry representatives.

Please help us congratulate Karl on these great achievements! To learn more about Kreder’s research within Dr. Arumugam Manthiram’s group, please see their website here.
