These are some of the projects taking shape in the labs of the University of Texas at Austin, where a select group of students is working on potential energy solutions of tomorrow.
The students, more formally known as University of Texas Energy Institute Emerging Technology Fellows, are supported by ExxonMobil and are looking to solve big energy challenges, including how to provide more energy with fewer emissions. The fellows program provides research funding and an external industrial perspective through the involvement of mentors, many of whom work in ExxonMobil’s R&D labs.
After they graduate, fellows pass the baton to the next generation of aspiring energy scientists, ensuring a continuous supply of fresh thinking.
Here are five fellows who are leading the next generation of university research.
