Guelph Physics Livestream: Battery Science

Date and Time


Virtual - YouTube


The Guelph Physics live stream debuts its summer series Tuesday June 8th at 7:00 pm EDT with a discussion about the science (and in particular the physics) behind batteries! 

Event poster with images of  three men; host Orbax and guests; Dr. Mike Fleischauer and Dr. Stephen Glazier, along with all event information listed below.  Our panel is comprised of two Guelph Physics alumni working in the field of battery research.

Dr. Stephen Glazier (class of 2013) completed his PhD under the supervision of lithium-ion battery guru Dr. Jeff Dahn. He works at Novonix, a company whose focus is making better battery technology faster, cleaner, and cheaper. By developing high performance, low cost battery materials, and providing consulting and technology development programs for external clients, Stephen’s role at Novonix is to enable faster adoption of affordable, high performance battery technology across the battery market. 

Dr. Mike Fleischauer (class of 2001) joined the National Research Council (NRC) in Edmonton in 2007 after also completing his PhD under Dr. Dahn (2005).  Mike is now an Associate Research Officer at the NRC-Nanotechnology Research Centre, an adjunct professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Alberta, and on the City of Edmonton’s Energy Transition Climate Resilience Advisory Committee. His R&D efforts include nanostructured thin films for organic photovoltaics, fuel cell catalysts, and rechargeable and primary batteries. He is also working towards improving the understanding, safety, and performance of energy storage materials in harsh environments.  

As always, we will have a live Q&A where we will endeavour to answer your questions in real time!  

Please join us for this unique opportunity to join in with alumni who have become leaders in their field. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student looking for an interesting and compelling career, this will be the stream for you!  

Hosted by Orbax and streamed live to our YouTube channel and to Facebook @GuelphPhysics Tuesday June 8th at 7:00 pm EDT.
