Guest Bio

Dr. Gregory Houchins - Founder, CHEMent

Gregory Houchins is the Founder of CHEMent, a Carnegie Mellon University spinout focused on developing electrochemically engineered carbon zero cement inspired by battery science, which would drastically reduce the embodied carbon of concrete and the carbon output of the built environment. He received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Physics from CMU, where his research covered a range of topics in electrochemistry and energy storage, from machine-learning-enabled computational optimizations of Li-ion battery cathodes, to mechanistic understandings of degradation pathways. He holds a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from James Madison University.
