Energy Innovation at Nanoscale

Is the U.S. prepared to take advantage of nanotechnology's "Sputnik moment?" In the May 23 issue of Science Progress, CNS Postdoctoral Researcher Matthew Eisler compares industrial policy approaches of the U.S. and China as they affect the race to develop and create markets for new energy storage devices.

 

Dr. Eisler's general research interests lie in the history of science-based innovation, especially post-1945, and include the economy, culture, and lexicology of research and development, the symbolic, rhetorical, and dramaturgical applications of science and technology, and the relationship between technoscience, consumerism, and the environment, particularly in the energy and transportation sectors.
