Mark Hatch joins UC Riverside professor’s energy startup as CEO
An energy startup co-founded by Lorenzo Mangolini, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at UC Riverside, has brought on maker movement leader Mark Hatch as CEO. An advanced manufacturing entrepreneur, Hatch is the author of “The Maker Movement Manifesto” and “The Maker Revolution.” Mangolini and project scientist Giorgio Nava founded the startup, SiLi-Ion, in 2018 to commercialize a new energy storage material they developed through National Science Foundation supported research. The new material can be easily integrated with existing materials to boost both storage capacity and
