Bruce Koel Joins CBE Faculty

Bruce E. Koel, currently Professor of Chemistry at Lehigh University, will join the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering as Professor on January 1, 2011. Koel’s research is in catalysis and surface science, where he utilizes a wide array of approaches to evaluate the structure and reactivity of surfaces, the kinetics and thermodynamics of elementary reaction steps, and the reaction products. An area of particular interest has been the reactions of hydrocarbons on Pt and Pt-Sn alloys, but more generally, Koel’s current interests span electrocatalysis, nanofabrication, atomic level design and control of surface properties, deposition and growth, chemical modification of interfaces, environmental chemistry and heterogeneous atmospheric processes.
