James William Medlin

Visiting Professor; Dep. of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry, Competence Centre for Catalysis

Will Medlin received his BS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering from Clemson University and the University of Delaware, respectively. After conducting postdoctoral research at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California, he joined the faculty of the University of Colorado, where he now serves as the Denver Business Challenge Endowed Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering. His research focuses on the design of solid catalysts for energy and environmental applications. His work has particularly emphasized catalyst surface modification using organic self-assembled monolayers or inorganic thin films to enhance control over catalyst surface and near-surface properties. He has received several research and teaching awards, such as the NSF CAREER award and the AIChE Himmelblau Award. He has been a visiting professor at ETH-Zurich and is currently a guest professor at the Chalmers University of Technology.
