Distinguished Speaker
Michael Stanley Whittingham, awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2019.

Professor of chemistry and director of both the Institute for Materials Research and the Materials Science and Engineering program at Binghamton University. Whittingham is a key figure in the history of the development of lithium batteries. He discovered the intercalation electrodes in 1970s  and thoroughly described the concept of intercalation reaction for rechargeable batteries in the late of 1970s. He holds the original patents on the concept of the use of intercalation chemistry in high-power density, highly reversible lithium batteries. Therefore, he is called Founding Father of rechargeable lithium batteries.
