Clare P. Grey Receives EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Magnetic Resonance

November 12, 2018

The EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Magnetic Resonance will be presented to Clare P. Grey at the Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) on November 14 in Princeton, New Jersey.

The EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in Magnetic Resonance was presented to Clare P. Grey at the Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) on November 14 in Princeton, New Jersey. Grey is the Geoffrey Moorhouse-Gibson professor of chemistry at Cambridge University and a fellow of Pembroke College Cambridge.

After post-doctoral fellowships in the Netherlands and at DuPont CR&D in Wilmington, Delaware, Gray joined the faculty at Stony Brook University (SBU) as an assistant professor in 1994, and was promoted to associate professor in 1997, and then to professor in 2001, a position she held until2015. She moved to Cambridge in 2009, maintaining an adjunct position at Stony Brook. She was director and associate director of the Northeastern Chemical Energy Storage Center, a Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Frontier Research Center and is currently the director of the EPSRC Centre for Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems.

Grey’s recent honors and awards include the Research Award from the International Battery Association (2013), the Royal Society Davy Award (2014), the Arfvedson-Schlenk-Preis from the German Chemical Society (2015), the Société Chimique de France, French-British Prize (2017), and the International Solid State Ionics Galvani-Nernst-Wagner Mid-Career Award (2017), of which she is the first recipient. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society and in 2017 was elected as a Foreign member of the American Academy of Arts and Science and Fellow of the Electrochemical Society. Her current research interests include the use of solid state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and diffraction-based methods to determine structure–function relationships in materials for energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), conversion (fuel cells), and carbon capture.
