Lauren Hughes

Lauren A. Hughes is a post-doctoral researcher at the National Center for Electron Microscopy-LBNL. Working for Professor Andrew M. Minor and Dr. Colin Ophus, in collaboration with Toyota Research Institute, her research is focused on in operando and ex-situ characterization of nanobatteries and energy related materials using four-dimensional scanning transmission electron microscopy (4D-STEM) as well as other microscopy techniques. Hughes received her Ph.D from University of California, Davis in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. During her tenure, she was awarded the National Science Foundation graduate fellowship. As a graduate in Professor Klaus van Benthem’s group, she studied electric field effects on strontium titanate grain boundaries. She has been a user at the foundry since 2015.
