Meet Dr. Eberman. Dr. Kevin Eberman is a product development manager, creating higher energy materials for batteries that power smart-phones, tablets, and electric vehicles. Since starting at 3M in 1999, Eberman has developed cathode materials that are now an integral part of plug-in hybrids like the Chevy Volt; anode materials that are the foundation for the next big step-up in battery energy, and electrolyte materials that make these battery cells last longer. In addition, Eberman has 20 publications, holds five patents and has five patent applications pending.
During his time at 3M, Eberman has been dedicated to recruiting new employees from his alma mater, M.I.T., and mentoring summer interns and new 3M Scientists.
