Listen to Dr. Turner talk about his research in hydrogen production and innovation in fuel cells in this podcast hosted by ECS Executive Director Roque Calvo. Dr. Turner's pioneering work in renewable energy has made a long-lasting impact on the field of electrochemical science.
Dr. Turner has studied under highly notable pillars of electrochemistry, such as Fred Anson and Heinz Gerischer. He joined the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 1979 – where he is now a Research Fellow – and began his work on photoelectrochemical water splitting for hydrogen production. Among his many honors and awards, Turner received the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Outstanding Mentor Award for his work with undergraduate students.
