Biography

Eric supports industry partnerships and commercialization of Argonne technologies in the areas of catalysis, transportation research, and X-ray & accelerator sciences.

Eric joined Argonne from Johnson Matthey, where he created advanced catalytic converters for global automotive manufacturers. In his work he investigated novel materials, created new processing methods, and designed unique emission control systems. Eric was also lead scientist for Johnson Matthey’s global Three-Way Catalyst patent portfolio, in which he evaluated invention disclosures and drafted intellectual property portfolio strategy.

Previously, Eric was a Postdoc and Assistant Chemist at Argonne in the Materials Sciences division from 2012-2015. His area of researched covered the fabrication and investigation of nanomaterials with particular focus on the heterogeneous catalytic and electrocatalytic properties of these novel materials. Much of his time was spent at the APS where in-situ X-ray scattering and fluorescence experiments were employed to determine structure-function relationships.

Eric earned an MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from The Pennsylvania State University. He also earned a B.S. with distinction in Chemistry from Clarkson University.
