About EVClub

The EVClub was started years earlier by Ken Witwer at Johns Hopkins as an intra-institution activity. When the COVID-19 pandemic brought lockdowns in early 2020, Dr. Witwer steered the EVClub to an online setting and expanded access to anyone interested. The EVClub is a venue for discussing research and published articles - often including discussion with the authors themselves - and generally sharing ideas in a wider community of EV researchers.
