Dr. Hu has a BS in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University. He is currently a board member of the MIT Enterprise Forum Cambridge and one of Forbes 30 Under 30 and MIT Technology Review’s Innovators Under 35.
“SES may thus be first among the Li-Metal startups to commence the multi-year formal validation, giving it a potential edge over solid-state rivals like VW-backed QuantumScape.”
