Robert J. Messinger is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at The City College of New York (CCNY) and a core faculty member of the CUNY Energy Institute. He earned a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara (2012). Afterwards, he studied at the CNRS, France, first as a European Union Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow in OrlĂ©ans (2012-2014), and subsequently with the Grenoble Institute of Technology (2014-2015). At CCNY, his research group studies materials for energy or engineering applications, with a strategic emphasis on multi-scale understanding and control up from the atomic scale. Current systems of interest include novel materials for rechargeable batteries, as well as multi-phase fluids and polymers for engineering applications. He is an expert in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. He recently was honored to attend the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Conference, with 65 Nobel Laureates and 650 early career researchers in attendance from around the world.
