NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY (NREL)
Josh Schaidle is the lead for the Catalytic Carbon Transformation platform within the National Bioenergy Center at NREL in Golden, Colorado. Research within this platform ranges from atomistic-scale modeling of catalytic surfaces and reactor flow dynamics to pilot-scale verification of waste- and biomass-to-fuels processes coupled with techno-economic analysis and life cycle assessment. Josh received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California-Santa Barbara in 2006 and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2011, with a concentration in environmental sustainability. He seeks to advance the catalysis and bioenergy fields by working at the interface of foundational science and applied engineering, leveraging a combined experimental and computational approach.
