- PhD, CTO & Co-Founder
Adam, CTO & Co-Founder of INFINIUM (formerly MOxST), has over 16 years experience designing, improving, and modeling processes for materials production and modification. His expertise includes broad materials coverage: metal extraction/refining and products, thin films, ceramic coatings, polymer membranes, batteries, and E-M propulsion.
He has pioneered innovations in phase field modeling for solidification, fluid-structure interactions, electrochemistry, and polymer membranes and has deep technology and domain experience with a PhD from MIT.
Along with Derezinski, Adam has built a world-class team at INFINIUM, growing the company from 2 employees to 20+ employees. Adam has led innovations for the company with experimental validation and scale-up design to turn core solid electrolyte metal extraction patents into a viable industrial process. He is the primary author of INFINIUM's patent portfolio with over seven applications (plus two provisionals), one with notice of issuance, and is the principle Investigator on $8.4M in government grants & contracts.
Prior to working with INFINIUM, Adam was on MIT's Material Science & Engineering faculty, and also received his PhD in Materials Engineering from MIT.
