Dr. Witt received her PhD in Chemistry from The Ohio State University in 2017. Her graduate research centered around the investigation of dirhodium catalysts for electrochemical water splitting and/or carbon dioxide reduction under the guidance of Prof. Claudia Turro. After finishing her PhD, she moved to the University of Missouri where she explored nuclear battery systems during a one year postdoctoral fellowship. In 2018, she was awarded a National Research Council Postdoctoral Associateship to conduct research on structure-performance relationships of solid oxide fuel cell materials at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Dr. Witt is currently a staff scientist at Fraunhofer USA Center Midwest, where she is the technical lead on projects related to electrochemical applications of diamond-related materials, including the use of boron doped diamond in wastewater treatment. She currently manages all of the center’s projects on treating water sources contaminated with PFAS.
