Postdoctoral research associates and graduate students associated with our affiliated faculty are invited to our monthly PD&GS Luncheon Seminars. For September's seminar, Prof. Eduardo Wolf will present, "Climate Change: Science and Consequences." This presentation was rescheduled from August.
This talk will focus on the causes and current effects of climate change using data and imagery from renowned researchers, politicians, authors, and film-makers who have spent years educating people about climate change and are now calling them to action for the sake of Earth’s future. Current research initiatives at Notre Dame as well as potential education and professional development opportunities will also be discussed.
Prof. Wolf is the Anthony Earley Professor of Energy and Environment Emeritus in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He is the founder and first president of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Catalysis and Reaction Engineering Division and a member of the Editorial Board for Catalysis Letters, Catalysis Reviews Science and Engineering, Topics in Catalysis, and Applied Catalysis. Prof. Wolf joined the University in 1975 as a faculty member. His research interests are focused on the rational design of novel catalytic materials, novel catalytic reactors, and, most recently, on catalysis for the production and purification of hydrogen for fuel cells. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley (1975), his M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Davis (1972), and his B.S. in Civil and Chemical Engineering from the University of Chile (1969).
