N1 - Funding Information: Michael A. Hickner received a BS in chemical engineering from Michigan Tech in 1999 and MEng in 2002 and PhD in chemical engineering from Virginia Tech in 2003. In graduate school, he worked under the direction of James E. McGrath and also spent time in the fuel cell group at Los Alamos National Laboratory developing novel aromatic proton exchange membranes for both hydrogen and direct methanol fuel cells. Before joining the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Penn State in July 2007, he was a postdoctoral researcher and subsequently became a staff member at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM, where he conducted experimental investigations and modeling studies of liquid water transport in fuel cells and porous media and properties of ion-containing membranes, electrochemical reactors, and nanoporous membranes for water treatment applications. His research group at Penn State is focused on the synthesis and properties of ion-containing polymers, measurement of water–polymer interactions using spectroscopic techniques, and the study of self- and directed assembly of polymeric nanostructures for fast transport. He has ongoing projects in new polymer synthesis, fuel cells, batteries, water treatment membranes, and organic photovoltaic materials. He is currently an assistant professor and the Virginia S. and Philip L. Walker Jr. Faculty Fellow in the Materials Science Department at Penn State. Hickner’s work has been recognized by a Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award (2008), Young Investigator Awards from ONR and ARO (2008), a 3M Non-tenured Faculty Grant (2009), and a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from President Obama in 2009. He has five US and international patents and over 60 peer-reviewed publications since 2001 that have been cited more than 2900 times as of 2011.
