Dr. Rajamani Gounder is the Larry and Virginia Faith Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University. He received his B.S. at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology. In 2016, Dr. Gounder received the NSF CAREER Award, the Young Scientist Prize from the International Congress on Catalysis, the Outstanding Mentor of Engineering Graduate Students Award, and the R. Norris Shreve Award for Outstanding Teaching in Chemical Engineering. His research focuses on catalytic routes and materials that enable the conversion of petroleum- and natural gas-derived hydrocarbons to transportation fuels and chemicals, catalyst design for selective reactions of multifunctional and polyfunctional molecules, such as those derived from renewable biomass, in liquid and gaseous phases, and selective catalytic reduction of NOx compounds with ammonia for pollution abatement in lean-burn engine emissions.
