Dr. Iwnetim (Tim) Abate is an incoming Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the Principal Investigator of the Abate Group. His work combines electrochemistry, X-ray and electrochemical characterization with quantum mechanical simulations to design materials for decarbonization and sustainability. He completed his Materials Science and Engineering Ph.D. at Stanford. He was born and raised in Ethiopia. He is married to Dr. Loza Tadesse. They have one daughter, Mary.
