Dr. Kevin Solomon is an Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Solomon earned a B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering and an M.S. in Chemical Engineering Practice from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Solomon has received numerous awards including the Lemelson Presidential Fellowship, a NSERC Julie Payette Award, and a Science Education Leadership Award from SynBERC. Dr. Solomon's research program combines both applied and fundamental approaches to better understand the design principles of metabolic flux and gene regulation in microbes and expand the toolbox for synthetic biology. His research aims to harness these tools and principles to engineer microbes that can robustly adapt to its environment while performing new tasks as chemical factories, microbial computers, and novel therapeutics.
