Dr. Brian Storey joined the faculty at Olin in 2000 and was one of the founding faculty members.

Dr. Storey received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, M.S. from University of Illinois, and B.S. from the University of Texas at Austin - all in mechanical engineering.

Currently, Dr. Storey is the senior director of Energy & Materials at Toyota Research Institute (TRI). The goal of the Energy & Materials program is to develop tools for accelerating the development of new energy materials for emissions-free mobility. The Energy & Materials program consists of our internal Energy & Materials research team as well as an extensive collection of funded collaborative research at leading universities. The Energy & Materials program aims to translate new ideas, tools and technology for accelerating materials discovery to practice within TMC and the broader research community.
