Summer Ferreira, P.hD.

B.S. New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology
Ph.D. University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Dr. Summer spent two years at Sandia National Laboratories as a postdoctoral researcher in hybrid organic/inorganic photovoltaics before moving to stationary energy storage in 2011 in support of the DOE Office of Electricity program. Summer leads the Energy Storage Analysis Laboratory, which is dedicated to advancing energy storage through: involvement in energy storage standards; the development and understanding of testing profiles on the life of energy storage technologies; the relationship between energy storage device life under laboratory profiles to that in real world applications; and the third party characterization and life cycle testing of devices for academic, government laboratory, and commercial developers. Summer received her Ph.D. In Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with Prof. Jennifer Lewis.

David M. Rose

B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E., Montana Technology of the University of Montana
Areas of Expertise: Energy Storage Testing, Experimental Design, Data Collection and Analysis, Power Engineering Theory, Modeling & Application

Mr. Rose spent three years working with the Idaho National Laboratory developing advanced spectral impedance measurement techniques for hybrid vehicles cells before moving to the stationary energy storage sector in 2011. He now uses the Energy Storage Test Pad (ESTP) to characterize AC integrated energy storage systems up to 1MW in size. He obtained his master's degrees in electrical engineering from Montana Tech.
