Accelerating Materials Design and Discovery for Electric Vehicles


Brian Storey, Director of the Accelerated Materials Design and Discovery (AMDD)

Toyota Research Institute



Developing truly emissions free transportation and mobility will remain one of society's grand challenges over the coming decades. The shift toward increased electrification is already presenting both new opportunities and new challenges for the auto industry. At Toyota Research Institute (TRI), we believe that a sustainable future will require new materials and our aim is to develop tools and capability to accelerate the pace of R&D on materials for battery and fuel cell electric vehicles. Given the scale of the problem, the strategy at TRI relies on close collaboration between industry and university research.  This talk will discuss some ongoing collaborative projects at TRI as examples of how we believe we can start to make progress.



Brian Storey is Director of the Accelerated Materials Design and Discovery (AMDD) program at Toyota Research Institute.   The goal of the AMDD program is to develop tools for accelerating the development of new energy materials for emissions free mobility. The AMDD program consists of an internal TRI research team as well as $10M/year of university sponsored research. In addition to his role at Toyota, Dr. Storey is a professor of mechanical engineering at Olin College. He has been on the faculty at Olin since 2000 and was one of the founding faculty members for this undergraduate, engineering focused college.  Dr. Storey received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, M.S. from University of Illinois, and BS from the University of Texas, Austin - all in Mechanical Engineering.


Reception at 2:45 p.m. in the Howey Physics L-2 Atrium
