Eric Sorte

Eric Sorte earned his PhD in physics from the University of Utah in 2011, where he developed new experimental evidence for fundamental theories of nuclear spin systems. With the intent to contribute to alternative energy solutions, he then came to Washington University in St. Louis, where he worked to further the understanding of metal hydrides as hydrogen storage systems. Sorte joined Georgetown University as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014, where he specializes in applying novel spectroscopic methods to understand electrocatalysis in electrochemical cells and batteries.
