Corie L. Cobb joined UW Engineering last spring through a Washington Research Foundation Professorship in Clean Energy with a joint position in Mechanical Engineering and the Clean Energy Institute. She previously worked at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Inc. (formerly known as Xerox PARC) as a senior member of research staff, developing advanced manufacturing technologies for solar cells, batteries and high strength and high toughness materials. Corie has held positions at Applied Materials, Hewlett-Packard, Bell Labs, Google and Toshiba. At the UW, Corie’s research will focus on developing novel manufacturing and design methods that enable next-generation energy storage devices and multi-functional materials.

Corie was a 2002 Bell Labs Cooperative Research Fellow and a 2005 Alfred P. Sloan Ph.D. Scholar. More recently, Corie was an invited participant at the 2015 National Academy of Engineering China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium and the recipient of a best paper award at the 2015 SiliconPV conference with her co-authors.
