Dr. Mark D. Allendorf is Co-Director of the DOE Hydrogen Materials – Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC) and a Senior Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. He holds an A.B. in chemistry (Magna Cum Laude) from Washington University in St. Louis and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Stanford University. At Sandia, he conducts research in two primary areas: 1) fundamental science and applications of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and 2) on materials for hydrogen storage. Current interests include nanoscale metal hydrides; nanoconfinement effects; metastable materials; gas storage; hydrogen carriers; MOFs for electronic devices, chemical sensing, and radiation detection. His research has generated more than 200 journal articles and proceedings papers, as well as thirteen patents. He is Past President and Fellow of The Electrochemical Society and has received Sandia awards for research, leadership, and teamwork, as well as a 2014 R&D100 Award for a novel approach to radiation detection.
