Jonathan Winterstein

Jonathan Winterstein is a Research Scientist in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Washington State University and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Connecticut. His doctoral research used transmission electron microscopy to study defects and reactions in oxide ceramics. While in graduate school, Jonathan received an NDSEG Fellowship from the Air Force and a Fulbright grant to conduct research using electron spectroscopy at Graz University of Technology in Austria. Before joining the CNST, he worked as an applications scientist focusing on environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) for the FEI Company. Jonathan is working with Renu Sharma and J. Alexander Liddle developing ETEM instrumentation and methods to measure the behavior of active catalyst nanostructures in situ
