23-141208-122135-0114PMEAL is the lab of Jeff Gostick, an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo.  He received his undergraduate degree from Ryerson University in Toronto in 2000 and his Master’s degree from University of Waterloo in 2002.  Prior to beginning his PhD, he worked as a Research Engineer at Teck Resources Inc. on the production of zinc powder and fiber for zinc-air flow batteries and medium-scale alkaline batteries.  His PhD work focused on the hydrogen fuel cell.  Upon completion of his PhD in 2009 he did 1 year of post-doctoral work at with the US Department of Energy at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, performing ‘cat-scans’ on porous electrode materials.  He joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at McGill University in 2010 as an Assistant Professor, where he ran the Porous Materials Engineering & Analysis Lab until 2016. Prof. Gostick moved to the University of Waterloo in January 2017 to join a stellar team of electrochemical researchers.  His current research continues to include fuel cell electrodes in collaboration with industrial partners, but has expanded to include all manner of engineered porous materials ranging from electrospun nanofiber webs for flow battery electrodes and tissue scaffolds, to nanoporous zeolite materials for carbon capture.  He is also a lead developer of the open source pore network modeling project OpenPNM (openpnm.org).
