Following the deliberation of the jury Dr. Gregory Wildgoose was honoured by the first edition of the YESS award at Batteries 2015 in Nice. The jury was unanimous about the innovative quality of his project using frustrated Lewis pairs in a new battery concept.
« I am absolutely delighted to receive the YESS award for 2015 from the RS2E network. This is the first award I have ever won and I – together with the rest of the research team – are truly honoured that our ideas and the potential impact of our research into new energy storage technologies using frustrated Lewis pairs has been recognised through this award », reacted the winner.
Dr. Wildgoose is currently working at East Anglia University. He was promoted Professor in last August. You can find additionnal details about his work on his group's page at http://www.wildgooseresearch.com/
