Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Bilge Yildiz is an associate professor in the Nuclear Science and Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where she leads the Laboratory for Electrochemical Interfaces. She received her PhD degree at MIT in 2003 and her BSc degree from Hacettepe University in Turkey in 1999. Her research interests include molecular-level studies of oxygen reduction kinetics on oxide surfaces at elevated temperatures, under stress and in reactive gases, by combining in situ surface sensitive experiments with first-principles calculations and novel atomistic simulations. She was the recipient of the Charles Tobias Young Investigator Award of the Electrochemical Society in 2012, and an NSF CAREER Award in 2011.
