Dr. Bogart is a chemical engineer with a focus on materials science and electrochemistry. He has extensive experience with the synthesis and characterization of battery electrode materials in addition to battery assembly/disassembly and testing. Dr. Bogart uses his technical training and expertise to characterize the performance and construction of batteries as well as identify the root cause of their failure.

Dr. Bogart has experience in numerous characterization techniques including electron microscopy (SEM/TEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), UV-visible (UV-Vis) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and particle size distribution analysis. Additionally, he has synthesized a range of nanomaterials, in particular, semiconductor nanowires with tunable electronic and electrochemical properties for improved device performance.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Bogart was a Senior Scientist at Nexeon, Ltd. where he led the development of a silicon-based material for lithium-ion battery anodes gaining experience with material production as well as commercial fabrication and testing of batteries. Additionally, he was a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellow at The University of Texas at Austin where he conducted research focused on the design, synthesis, and characterization of silicon and germanium nanowires for next generation lithium-ion battery anodes.
