Matt Murbach Named a Forbes “30 Under 30” in energy

Nov. 21, 2017: Chemical engineering Ph.D. student, Battery Informatics, Inc. (Bii) co-founder, and CEI Graduate Fellow Matt Murbach made Forbes’ “30 Under 30: Energy” list! Each year, the magazine selects the top 30 people in the world under age 30 working on energy solutions. Matt’s Ph.D. research with CEI Director Dan Schwartz is focused on inventing new ways to diagnose a battery’s state of health. Batteries are a critical and expensive asset in the emerging low-carbon energy economy. And, the company he helped form, Bii, is licensing UW intellectual property to extract value from battery assets over the whole battery lifecycle. Matt joins the ranks of previous Forbes “30 Under 30: Energy” honorees from CEI: electrical engineering professor Baosen Zhang and postdoctoral fellow Giles Eperon (working with CEI Chief Scientist and chemistry professor David Ginger).
