Professor - Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Sabolsky received his B.S. in Ceramic Science and Engineering with a minor in Metallurgical Engineering from The Ohio State University in 1996. He completed his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University in 2001. Sabolsky's work at Penn State focused on ceramic processing and properties of high strain piezoelectric ceramics. Sabolsky joined NexTech Materials, Ltd. (NexTech) in 2001 where he continued his work in ceramic powder synthesis, forming, and thermal processing of piezoelectric/dielectric, sensor, catalyst, and solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) materials. In 2006, Sabolsky assumed the position of Fuel Cell Group Leader at NexTech, where he managed the SOFC research group. Sabolsky joined the Fine Ceramics and Igniter R&D Group within the Saint-Gobain High-Performance R&D Center in 2007 as a Senior Research Scientist. Sabolsky assumed the position of Assistant Professor at West Virginia University in 2008 to continue his work in advanced ceramic processing and materials for energy-related applications.
