US Department of Energy - ARPA-E
Dr. Paul Albertus currently serves as a Program Director at the Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy (ARPA-E). His focus at ARPA-E includes energy storage for transportation and stationary applications, energy conversion, and energy materials. Dr. Albertus initiated and manages the IONICS program, which is focused on separator technology for high-energy Li metal batteries, flow batteries, and alkaline-based fuel cells and electrolyzers. He also manages numerous other projects from battery, fuel cell, and other programs using electrochemical technologies in the ARPA-E portfolio. Prior to joining ARPA-E, Dr. Albertus spent more than four years at the Bosch Research and Technology Center in Palo Alto, California, working on electrochemical energy storage systems. His work has included mathematical modeling of electrochemical processes, energy storage system and cost analysis, and electrochemical and thermal property measurements. Dr. Albertus completed his B.S.E. at the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, both in Chemical Engineering.
