Welcome to the Bates Research Group at the University of Virginia!
January 2024: Jason Bates receives the New Investigator Award of the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) to support kinetic and spectroscopic interrogation of electrocatalyst microenvironments.
November 2023: Jason Bates's manuscript with the Stahl group on active-site quantification in Fe-N-C catalysts is published in JACS! Thank you to our outstanding collaborators Plamen Atanassov, Frédéric Jaouen, Peter Strasser, Tim-Patrick Fellinger, and Gang Wu!
October 2023: We welcome Kayla Wozny as part of the first incoming graduate student class to join the group! Kayla completed her undergraduate studies at Lafayette College in 2023.
October 2023: We welcome Ethan Fortuna as part of the first incoming graduate student class to join the group! Ethan completed his undergraduate studies at Penn State University in 2023.
