CBEE Heterogeneous Catalysis Seminar

The School of CBEE and Environmental Engineering invites you to a seminar with Prof. Manos Mavrikakis, University of Wisconsin - Madison Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering. The discussion covers "Heterogeneous Catalysis: Reaction Mechanisms and Materials Discovery from first-principles." Manos Mavrikakis is the Paul A. Elfers Professor and the Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Chemical Engineering at UW-Madison. He received a Diploma in Chemical Engineering from NTUA in Greece, and a MS in Applied Math, and a PhD in Chemical Engineering & Scientific Computing from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Following a postdoc at U of Delaware and at the Technical University of Denmark, he joined the Chemical Engineering faculty at UW-Madison in 1999. His main research interests include the elucidation of detailed reaction mechanisms for heterogeneously catalyzed reactions and the identification of improved catalytic materials from first principles-based microkinetic modeling. According to Thomson-Reuters, Manos was one of the “Top100 chemists for the 2000-2010 decade”, was elected to APS Fellow in 2013, and AAAS Fellow in2014.
