Graham Leverick has been a PhD Candidate in the Electrochemical Energy Lab at MIT since 2016. Prior to joining MIT, Graham received his B.Sc. (2011) and M.Sc. (2013) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, researching a wide range of topics including modelling the influence of new technologies on primary energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, controlling the natural dynamics of buoyant structures and developing nonlinear dynamical measures to characterize human walking. Graham also worked for three years doing research and development on harvesting equipment with MacDon Industries. At the Electrochemical Energy Lab, Graham’s research focuses on better understanding how the solvation environment of ions can be manipulated to improve Li+ ion mobility in solid polymer electrolytes, control redox reactions in Li-O2 batteries and be used to develop new, beyond Li-ion energy storage technologies.
