New book chronicles Thackeray’s battery research
Mike Thackeray, one of Argonne’s premier battery scientists, has written a book detailing his battery research over the course of a long, distinguished career.
“Running with Lithium — Empowering the Earth” follows the path of science from materials’ discovery to commercial use and the protection of intellectual property. Thackeray shares his memoir and a story about decision-making and the consequences of choice on the course of a life in a highly competitive world while encountering big changes, experiences, and remarkable coincidences along the way. A significant portion of these accomplishments happened at Argonne.
Thackeray joined Argonne in 1994 and served as a distinguished fellow and senior scientist prior to his retirement as Argonne emeritus scientist in 2019.
“Running with Lithium” is available through Archway Publishing and Amazon.com in hardcover, softcover and e-book formats.
