Amanda Morris is currently an Assistant Professor of Inorganic and Energy Chemistry at Virginia Tech University. Her research education conducted at Penn State University (B.S.), Johns Hopkins University (PhD), and Princeton University (Postdoctoral) has been focused on addressing critical environmental issues with fundamental science including water remediation, solar energy harvesting and storage, and carbon dioxide conversion. As her publication record shows, Morris is a classically trained photo-electrochemist with demonstrated success utilizing various techniques (cyclic voltammetry, spectroelectrochemistry, and pulsed-laser spectroscopy) to explore new frontiers in renewable energy. In 2012, she was awarded the Ralph Powe Junior Faculty Award in Physical Chemistry. She currently serves as an American Chemical Society Expert in the area of Sustainable Energy.
