Dr. Joshua Sangoro
Joshua Sangoro is Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK). He received his doctorate in Experimental Physics in 2010 from the University of Leipzig (Germany) with Prof. Friedrich Kremer. His dissertation research focused on studies of ionic liquids by broadband dielectric spectroscopy. Dr. Sangoro worked as a Research Scientist at the University of Leipzig till early 2012 when he joined the Chemical Sciences Division of The Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. In September 2012, he was awarded the Feodor-Lynen Research Fellowship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Dr. Sangoro joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Tennessee in the Fall of 2013. Dr. Sangoro has authored or co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. He has also contributed to over 55 (21 invited) technical presentations at national and international conferences. In 2016, he received a Young Investigator Award from the Army Research Office. His current research focuses on understanding the underlying mechanisms determining dynamics and ionic conduction in soft materials across multiple length- and time-scales.
