We are delighted to welcome Professor James Dumesic and Professor Linda Nazar to the Energy & Environmental Science Editorial Board.
James Dumesic, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
James A. Dumesic earned his B.S. degree from UW-Madison and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University. Professor Dumesic joined the Department of Chemical Engineering in 1976, and he is currently a Vilas Research Professor at the University of Wisconsin and the Michel Boudart Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering. Throughout his career, Professor Dumesic has used spectroscopic, microcalorimetric, and reaction kinetics techniques to study the surface and dynamic properties of heterogeneous catalysts. Widely recognized as a leading researcher in the fields of catalysis and chemical engineering, Professor Dumesic has co-founded two companies (Virent and Glucan Biorenewables) and pioneered new processes for creating bio-derived fuels and chemicals. Professor Dumesic has published more than 450 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
