John Cannarella, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
John Cannarella is a PhD candidate working under Craig Arnold in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton University. His research interests focus on the broad topic of clean energy production and storage. Specifically, John’s current research activities aim to understand how the mechanical stress that arises during normal lithium-ion battery operation affects the battery’s cycle life. The ultimate goal is to develop lithium-ion energy storage systems with longer cycle/calendar lives, which is critical to making large scale batteries economically viable.
