Please Welcome Jennifer Wilcox to the CBE Faculty

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering welcomes Dr. Jennifer Wilcox. Dr. Wilcox joins the School as the Presidential Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Energy Policy. She has a profound respect and appreciation of nature, which permeates her work as she focuses on minimizing negative impacts of humankind on our natural environment. Her research focuses on innovative ways to avoid new CO2 emissions from entering the air, in addition to the removal of old emissions, so as to mitigate the accumulating effects of fossil fuels on our planet.
