Joel Schmidt

Joel E. Schmidt obtained his BS and MS degrees in Chemical Engineering at The University of Dayton (Dayton, OH, USA), and at this time did research in the Thermal Sciences and Materials Branch of the US Air Force Research Labs. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, CA, USA) in 2015 in the group of Mark E. Davis where he researched zeolite synthesis, including the bulk synthesis of enantiomerically enriched chiral zeolites. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) in the group of Bert M. Weckhuysen on projects using advanced characterization techniques to study zeolite catalysts such as atom probe tomography and X-ray microscopy. In 2018 he began working at Chevron Energy Technology Company (San Francisco, CA) as a member of the Catalytic Materials technical team.
