Peter Bennington

Peter received his Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from University of California, San Diego in 2016. Peter joined PME at the University of Chicago in 2017 as a graduate student and currently works under the supervision of Prof. Shrayesh Patel and Prof. Paul Nealey.

Peter’s current research focuses on solid polymer electrolytes for energy storage applications.  His work involves understanding the self-assembly behavior and electrochemical performance of ion conducting polymers.
