Jeffrey Fergus, faculty member in Auburn University’s materials engineering program, has been appointed editor of ECS Transactions (ECST), an online publication containing content of the Electrochemical Society (ECS) meetings. During the next year, Fergus hopes to identify new ways to use ECST to expand dissemination of meeting content and enhance scientific discourse in electrochemical science.

Fergus earned a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering from the University of Illinois and a doctorate in materials science and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. After a postdoctoral position at Notre Dame, he became an assistant professor at Auburn University. He currently serves as chair of the high temperature materials division of ECS, chair of the ECS education committee and a faculty adviser for the Auburn student chapter of ECS.

ECS is an educational nonprofit organization focused on electrochemical and solid-state science and technology and includes more than 9,000 scientists and engineers in more than 75 countries, as well as 100 corporate members.
