Dr. Ozge Kahvecioglu
After joining Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) in 2010 as a Postdoctoral Associate, Kahvecioglu has established and led the process R&D and scale-up of the Cathode Active Materials program at ANL. In her current role as a Principal Materials Scientist, she directs several projects for energy storage materials, applying her expertise in materials manufacturing R&D, process scale-up, and advanced materials characterization. Dr. Kahvecioglu is the lead investigator for one of Argonne’s core battery programs that is funded by the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office. According to the DOE, she, “…is credited with the first introduction of a Taylor Vortex Reactor to the United States for battery materials manufacturing—an advanced instrument to carry out chemical reactions.” With this technology, she developed improved production processes for several new cathode materials, allowing manufacturing at a lower cost.
