Chemical and Biological Engineering,
Prof. Justin Notestein received his BSE at Princeton University in 2001 and his PhD at the University of California Berkeley in 2006, both in Chemical Engineering. Since 2007, he has been a member of the Center for Catalysis and Surface Science and the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, where he now has the rank of Professor. Research in Prof. Notestein's group focuses on the development of new hybrid, oxide, and nanostructured catalysts and adsorbents for a number of transformations relevant to sustainable energy, selective oxidation, and improving industrial chemical processes. Special attention is on developing full synthesis-structure-function relationships for improving the process of new catalyst development.
