Expertise: Expertise in geomechanic and geochemistry applied to: risks associated with CO2 sequestration; hydraulic fracturing for shale gas production; environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing; and the water-energy nexus. Current research focuses on the scientific, environmental and public policy aspects of unconventional natural gas production, the water-energy nexus, and carbon capture and storage. He has a particular interest in risk analysis, decision making, and legal/regulatory issues related to fracing, CO2 sequestration, CO2-EOR, and energy production.

John G Ekerdt

John G Ekerdt

Professor and Dick Rothwell Endowed Chair in Chemical Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering
ekerdt@utexas.edu
+1 512 471 4689

Expertise: Dr. Ekerdt's research is on the surface, growth and materials chemistry of metal, dielectric, ferroelectric, and polymer thin films. We seek to understand and describe nucleation and growth of films and nanostructures, their structure-property relationships, and site-specific reactions that lead to their formation. The programs are motivated by applications in electronic materials, energy and sensors. The research programs are highly interdisciplinary and involve collaborations with faculty in chemical engineering, physics and electrical engineering, and researchers in industry.

Adam Heller

Research Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering
heller@che.utexas.edu
+1 512 471 8874, +1 512 471 8795

Expertise: Dr. Heller's study of the physical chemistry of inorganic oxyhalide solutions resulted in the first neodymium liquid lasers (1964-1967) and in the lithium thionyl chloride battery (1973), one of the earliest lithium batteries, remaining in use in medical and defense systems where 20 year shelf life, high energy density and a broad operating temperature range are required. His studies of photoelectrochemical solar cells resulted in 11.5 percent efficient solar cells (1980) and in 11 percent efficient hydrogen evolving photoelectrodes. His related studies of photoelectrocatalysis established that the rate of photo-assisted oxidation of organic matter on photocatalytic titanium dioxide particles was controlled by the rate of reduction of adsorbed oxygen by trapped electrons. He established the field the electrical wiring of enzymes (1988-2005), the electrical connection of their catalytic redox centers to electrodes, and built with wired enzymes the subcutaneously implanted miniature glucose sensors. His wired enzymes became the core technology of the FreeStyle NavigatorTM system of Abbott Diabetes Care; it continuously and accurately monitors subcutaneous glucose levels in diabetic people.

+1 512 471 4847

Expertise: Dr. Hwang's research has a well-balanced emphasis on fundamentals and applications. Using first principles-based tomistic modeling my research group focuses on developing a better understanding of (1) surface chemical reactions and dynamics, (2) solid-solid and solid-fluid interfacial interactions, and (3) defect nature and formation as well as their role in controlled chemical doping. By incorporating the fundamental knowledge and understanding into larger scale simulations, my research group also attempts to solve engineering problems encountered in the fabrication of nanoscale electronic, chemical and biological devices.
