Biography

Dr. Jason R. Croy is an internationally recognized expert on lithium- and manganese-rich cathode materials and has published numerous articles on the atomic-scale mechanisms governing the performance of lithium-ion electrodes. Highlights of his work include introducing a novel synthesis method for the fabrication of high-capacity materials, publishing a unique method for the analysis of X-ray absorption data related to working battery electrodes, 12 patents/applications and the International Battery Association’s 2016 Early Career Award.

Dr. Croy’s Ph.D. work focused on the electronic, vibrational, and catalytic properties of mono- and bi-metallic nanoparticle systems. In 2010 he began his career in energy storage at Argonne National Laboratory. His work at Argonne focuses on the design, synthesis, and characterization of high-energy lithium-ion electrode materials.

Dr. Croy is currently the principle investigator of three Department of Energy programs focused on lithium-ion cathode development and is leading the Department of Energy’s Deep-Dive consortium, Realizing Next Generation Cathodes for Li-Ion Batteries,” consisting of five national laboratories.
