Salerno Symposium showcases faculty research

KENNESAW, Ga. (Nov 1, 2019) — The symposium featured seven researchers who shared their latest discoveries with KSU students and faculty colleagues.
Our very own, Joseph Bock, Director of the School of Conflict Management and Professor of International Conflict Management gave a presentation on his new book proposal, “Humanitarianism Unleashed: How to Take the World into Your Own Hands”
“The Salerno Symposium is fast becoming the premier campus-wide celebration of the vibrant and growing research culture at KSU,” said Jonathan McMurry, associate vice president for research in KSU’s Office of Research and the symposium organizer.
Through the lens of materials chemistry, Poyraz’s research focuses on exploring alternative materials to coat a rechargeable battery’s cathode – the positive charge of a battery – which starts to breakdown during the charging/discharging phases.
Poyraz explained that the novel cathode-free zinc-ion battery design he is developing would help lower the costs of manufacturing large-scale energy storage devices as well as improving and extending battery life and performance.
“Having an event like this is really a great opportunity for us to present our research and to learn more about other research activities at KSU,” said Poyraz. “This is my second year participating and I feel more excited to be a part of the symposium.”
