Fik Brushett is an Associate Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has been involved in JCESR since its inception in varying roles, where he collaborated closely with the entire partner set. The focus of his work was both to establish rigorous materials design criteria for next-generation redox flow batteries and to develop appropriate testing platforms for novel redox chemistries.
At MIT, Brushett supervises a research group focused on advancing the science and engineering of electrochemical technologies needed for a sustainable energy economy. Teaching and service contributions focus on educating engineers to develop electrochemical solutions to critical global energy and sustainability challenges.
Brushett was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory from 2010 to 2012. He received his Ph.D. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Chemical Engineering in 2010 and B.S. in Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering in 2006.
