Introduction

Jane Howe is an Associate Professor jointly appointed in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. Prior to her new position at UofT, Jane worked as a Senior Applications Scientist with Hitachi High-Technologies group in US and Canada for the past five years. Jane received her Ph.D. in Ceramic Science from Alfred University in 2001. After a postdoc at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Jane stayed at ORNL as a Staff Scientist and Principal Investigator until 2012. She has over 100 publications on peer-reviewed journals and holds nine US patents on electron microscopy and materials characterization and development. She won two R&D 100 Awards in research and development of the lithium battery technology and nano-structured carbon materials. Jane’s current research interest is in situ and correlative microscopy techniques.

Research Interest

*In situ electron microscopy – characterization and property measurements of novel materials and nano-devices, and their real-time evolution during processing and operation

*Synthesis, property-structure relationship of new energy materials
