Supervising Faculty: Matthew Mench

Alan is a member of the Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Matthew Mench. His work is primarily focused on investigating degradation mechanisms in vanadium redox flow batteries. Alan’s work includes the use of electrochemical techniques as well as materials characterization at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Alan was born and raised in Troy, Michigan, living there until he moved to sunny Pasadena, California for his undergraduate studies. In the summer of 2011, he interned at Chevron with the Environment & Climate Change group. Prior to his intership at Chevron, he worked on characterizing solar concentrator performance with a Monte Carlo ray tracing simulation as an Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow at Caltech. He has also worked at an engineering firm and automotive parts supplier close to home in Troy. He played varsity soccer at Caltech, and enjoys playing and watching a variety of sports.
