Dr. Matthew Neurock is the Alice M. and Guy A. Wilson Professor of Engineering, Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Professor of Chemistry at the University of Virginia. He has worked in the area of computational heterogeneous catalysis for over 14 years. He has developed and applied theory and atomic scale simulation to elucidate catalytic reaction mechanisms for a wide range of different catalytic materials. His efforts have provided fundamental insights into the influence of surface structure, adlayer composition, support, alloy composition and arrangement, reaction medium and reaction conditions on catalyst performance. He is currently on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Catalysis and previously served on the Editorial Board for Catalysis Communications. Before joining the University of Virginia 1995, he worked in the Corporate Catalysis Center at the DuPont Chemical Company and at the Schuit Institute of Catalysis at the Technical University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering in 1992 from the University of Delaware.
