Baron Peters, Associate Professor
Department of Chemical Engineering and
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

B.S. Chemical Engineering
   University of Missouri - Columbia (1999)
B.S. Mathematics
   Univeristy of Missouri - Columbia (1999)
PhD Chemical Engineering
   Univeristy of California - Berkeley (2004)

Research interests: catalysis, nucleation, and electron transfer; statistical mechanics and electronic structure theory. In particular, we study nucleation from solution and polymorph selection, catalysis on amorphous supports, and gated electron transfer mechanisms. I coadvise students with Mike Doherty (ChE), Susannah Scott (ChE and Chem), and Joan-Emma Shea (Chem).

B.S. Chemical Engineering
   University of California, Riverside (2010)

My research goals are to facilitate the development of more active and sustainable catalysts for use in either chemical or energy production. I develop computational algorithms and use density functional theory to model the synthesis, activity, and stability of novel homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. I am also interested in developing promising materials for energy generation and waste heat recovery.
