Bryan R. Goldsmith has been named the Dow Corning Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering. He came to the University of Michigan in 2017 after completing a Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, Germany. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2015. Goldsmith’s research lab specializes in computational modeling to understand and design catalysts and materials for energy generation and storage, pollution reduction, and sustainable chemical conversion.
Regarding this honor, Goldsmith says, “I thank the Dow Chemical Company Foundation for their generous support of my research and teaching goals. Their support will enable my research group to explore promising ideas related to machine learning and catalysis, present our technical findings at leading conferences around the world, and sponsor visiting undergraduate researchers.”
