Dr. Rajamani Gounder receives ACS Early Career Award in Catalysis
Dr. Rajamani Gounder, the Larry and Virginia Faith Associate Professor in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University, was recently awarded the Early Career Award in Catalysis by the American Chemical Society (ACS) Catalysis Science and Technology Division.
This award recognizes and encourages accomplishments and innovation of unusual merit by an individual in the early stages of their career, emphasizing independence and creativity.
The ACS Catalysis Science and Technology Division recognizes distinguished individuals who have demonstrated pioneering research accomplishments in the design or synthesis of catalysts and/or chemical or mechanistic characterization of catalysts leading to recognized advancements in the understanding and application of catalysts.
“I am honored by this recognition of our group’s research accomplishments and the contributions of all our members, past and present,” said Dr. Gounder. “Our research on the fundamental science of catalyst design and evaluation, and on developing applications of catalytic technology, has benefitted greatly from collaborating with other scientists. This includes numerous faculty and students at Purdue and in Chemical Engineering with whom I have had the privilege to learn from and mentor over the past eight years.”
Dr. Gounder joined the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue in 2013. His research focuses on the fundamental science of catalysis, and its practical applications to develop sustainable routes to synthesize chemicals and fuels and to mitigate their deleterious impacts on the environment.
