Abstract: The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is looking for Fellows to help contribute to the direction of energy innovation. ARPA-E provides a unique opportunity to work alongside colleagues from diverse science and engineering backgrounds towards a common goal of changing the world through energy technology. Fellows gain experience in evaluating novel research and commercialization concepts and crafting funding opportunity announcements. With their experience at ARPA-E, Fellows go on to a variety of exciting careers in energy including at startups, venture capital, non-profits, government, and academic positions. This info session will discussion this opportunity further with a Q&A provided during the session.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Elise Goldfine currently serves as a Fellow at ARPA-E. Her technical interests include primary energy, energy storage, mining technologies, and decarbonization of industrial processes.

Dr. Goldfine earned her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University in 2023. Her Ph.D. research focused on synthesis and characterization of oxynitride materials for catalytic applications. She also holds a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Cornell University, where she studied deposition of nanoparticle electrodes for batteries and fuel cells. Dr. Goldfine also previously researched reconfigurable liquid-liquid interfaces at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and worked as a development engineer at Tessolar Inc., a startup working on novel solar module design.
