Jehad Abed


Jehad is a Vanier doctoral researcher at the Sargent group – University of Toronto. He is leading A3MD’s effort to accelerate the discovery of materials for efficient and durable electrocatalysis with the help of automation and data-driven experimentations. Jehad’s interests lie at the interface of material science, chemistry, and data science; he employs high-throughput experimentation, autonomous material discovery, and operando characterization to develop novel catalysts for a green and sustainable economy. Jehad is also passionate about transferring technology from the lab to industry; he was a finalist in the Carbon XPRIZE, where the team was able to upscale CO2 conversion into value-added products.
