Aaron Feaver

Dr. Feaver has a background in the synthesis and processing of high-performance earth-abundant carbon and silicon materials. He co-founded two materials companies in the energy storage space: Group14 and EnerG2. Feaver and the team grew EnerG2 (which was recently acquired by BASF) from a small venture-backed start-up company to a 100-person manufacturing organization with locations in Seattle and Oregon. Group14, with operations in Woodinville, WA, is focused on producing advanced silicon materials that increase lithium-ion batteries’ energy capacity. Feaver has written and spoken extensively on Materials Science & Engineering, as well as the specific use of carbon and silicon materials in transportation and clean energy storage applications.

Feaver was also a project manager and engineer at the Boeing Company, where he worked in Liaison Engineering and Value Engineering. He serves on the board of advisors for the University of Washington’s Materials Science and Engineering Department. He holds a BA in Physics from North Central College, a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Washington.
