Dr. Jeffrey Chamberlain is the Director of the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS), at Argonne National Laboratory.
Jeff received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Georgia Tech, where he studied reactions at semiconductor surfaces in an ultra-high vacuum environment. From 1993 until 2006, Jeff worked in industry and used his knowledge of surface science to develop profitable products for mining, coatings, and semiconductor manufacturing processes.
Since 2006 Jeff has worked at Argonne National Laboratory, where, prior to starting his new role in 2012, he managed the Argonne Battery Department, as well as managed the battery intellectual property portfolio. Jeff oversaw both the research in the lab after successfully licensing Argonne’s Li-ion battery technology to GM, BASF, LG Chem, and others. He went on to become the Deputy Director of Argonne’s Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, a DOE energy hub and is now the Director of ACCESS.
