Mississippi State University (MSU) is celebrating a significant achievement as one of its own, Ridwan Ayinla, a doctoral student in the College of Forest Resources, has been awarded a prestigious summer fellowship from the Electrochemical Society (ECS).

Ayinla is one of only four graduate students in the country to receive this highly competitive fellowship.

Ayinla, who is pursuing his doctorate in sustainable bioproducts, will utilize the $5,000 ES award to further his groundbreaking research into green batteries and supercapacitors powered by biomass. His work focuses on harnessing and storing energy from agricultural waste products, a promising step towards sustainable energy solutions.

“I am incredibly grateful for my advisor, Dr. El Barbary Hassan, and the department head, Dr. Rubin Shmulsky, who have supported me relentlessly,” Ayinla shared. “They believe in me, they listen to me, and they support and guide my research.”

This achievement reflects MSU’s commitment to sustainability and innovation, and Ayinla’s work is a great example of the university’s motto: #TakingCareOfWhatMatters.
