Matthias Young, assistant professor in biomedical, biological and chemical engineering in the University of Missouri College of Engineering, and assistant professor in chemistry in the College of Arts and Science, received the prestigious 2020 Paul H. Holloway Young Investigator Award from the American Vacuum Society (AVS) Thin Film Division.

Young, who leads the Mizzou Thin Film Coatings and Materials Electrochemistry Lab, was recognized for his work in thin film coating development. His work has helped lead to advances in electrochemical performance and energy storage.

“I was drawn to thin film research because I saw the potential for thin or ultrathin coatings – similar to those used in fabricating computer electronics – to be used to address other critical challenges facing society. For example, improving energy storage and water treatment technologies,” Young said.
