Dr. Collin Mui is the Lead Silicon Electrochemist at Gridtential Energy, Inc., and is responsible for the development of the silicon wafer current collector used in Gridtential’s Silicon JouleTM technology. Collin’s career in material and process development started at Novellus Systems, Inc. (merged with Lam Research), where he worked with an interdisciplinary team of engineers to develop processes and equipment for semiconductor wafer manufacturing. Collin’s experience in semiconductor deposition processes led him into his first battery startup, Amprius Inc., where he contributed to the development of nanotechnology materials for lithium ion batteries. Collin then ventured into Gridtential Energy in 2012 during its founding stage.
Dr. Collin Mui holds a B.A.Sc. in Chemical Engineering (Honours Chemistry) from the University of British Columbia, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. He has authored more than 20 scientific publications, and he holds several patents and patent applications worldwide.
