Talk Presentation: Materials Research Directions and Opportunities - Basic Energy Sciences
The Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) supports fundamental research that provides the foundations for new energy technologies and supports DOE missions in energy, environment, and national security. The research crosses the full spectrum of materials and chemical sciences, as well as aspects of biosciences and geosciences, with a focus on understanding, predicting, and ultimately controlling matter and energy at electronic, atomic, and molecular levels. This overview reviewed the current BES research portfolio and discussed future directions as defined through BES workshops, including research for clean energy, computational materials sciences, and the Early Career Research program.
Dr. Kung currently serves as the director, Office of Basic Energy Sciences with the DOE. She received her PhD in materials science and engineering with a minor in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University. Dr. Kung is the recipient of numerous awards including several performance and leadership service awards at Los Alamos, and the Presidential Meritorious Executive Rank Award in 2010.
