Alexander Mitsos is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. He received his engineering diploma from the University of Karlsruhe (TH), Germany and his Ph.D. from MIT in 2006, both in Chemical Engineering. In both degrees he excelled and received distinctions, awards and fellowships. He has over two years of industrial experience. In 2008 he was a Junior Research Group Leader at RWTH Aachen. Dr. Mitsos' research interests include microscale and macroscale energy systems and development of global optimization algorithms. He has authored over 10 articles in refereed journals and co-authored several more. Paul Barton is the Lammot du Pont Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT, where he has been since 1992. He received his Ph.D. from Imperial College, London. He has received several awards, including the Outstanding Young Researcher Award from AIChE's CAST Division. Professor Barton's research interests include theory and algorithms for simulation and global optimization, open process modeling software, and application of these methods in systems biology, micropower generation and energy systems engineering. He is author or co-author of over 80 articles in refereed journals and has led the development of several commercial software products.

It has very good technical coverage of the theory of operation of these devices ... it would be a good starting point for those beginning to learn about these electrochemical devices; even those working in the field could benefit from the theory and research presented on many different devices. It will give the reader a good theoretical understanding of these devices and inform comparison between them." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2011)
