Leonard wins young investigator award

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Kevin Leonard, assistant professor of chemical and petroleum engineering, was chosen by the Army Research Office (ARO) for a $150,000 grant to intelligently design earth-abundant water splitting electrocatalysts. The three-year award will help Leonard’s research group study how inexpensive, readily available catalysts can be used to generate hydrogen or oxygen. The ARO program consists primarily of single investigator research efforts, university-affiliated research centers, and specially tailored outreach programs.
