Jeffrey C. Grossman is the Morton and Claire Goulder and Family Professor in Environmental Systems, and is faculty in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. He received his B.A. in Physics from John Hopkins University in 1991, M.S. in Physics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992 and Ph.D. in Physics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1996.
I strive to apply a combined computational / experimental approach to outstanding science and technology challenges, with emphasis on gaining a deep understanding and then using that to design new materials for advances in energy conversion, energy storage, and water filtration. My approach does not necessarily rely on a single method to solve a given problem nor do I favor one method over another; rather, I believe in using the best method(s) available and those most suited to tackle the challenge at hand. The vision I set for my research program includes a strong emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach in order to expand the scientific possibilities beyond any one discipline or field, and to allow students and postdocs in my group to gain exposure to a broad intersection of materials science and engineering. In addition to cross-disciplinary collaborations related to my research goals, I actively pursue key partnerships with colleagues from both academia and industry in order to work on materials breakthroughs that can be scalable, robust and manufacturable at competitive cost.
