CBE Welcomes George Tsilomelekis

George Tsilomelekis joins the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering with extensive experience studying catalytic materials. His research interests focuses on the rational implementation of spectroscopic methods under realistic reaction conditions toward understanding complex catalytic reactions in the broad field of the conversion of renewable and alternative energy sources.

Previously he was a postdoctoral research associate with the University of Delaware, studying solvent effects in biomass processing. As a graduate student he studied the molecular structure of catalytic systems based on supported metal oxides and established structure-reactivity relationships via Operando spectroscopy and vibrational isotope effects.
