Data-Driven Materials Development in the Real World: Q&A with Dr. Jessica Golden

June 15, 2021

Many technical challenges arise when designing high energy density lithium batteries for EV applications. Dr. Jessica Golden tackles these challenges daily as the Scientific Manager at Sepion Technologies, a California-based battery company and alum of the Activate/Cyclotron Road program. Sepion’s secret to overcoming these technical challenges? Data.

In Episode 13 of Aionics Fortnightly, Dr. Golden will share how Sepion is accelerating battery development with data from both first principles modeling and machine learning efforts, and what it takes on the ground to cultivate a data-driven decision-making culture. Q&A will follow, so be sure to tune in and bring your questions!
