Dr. Eric Wachsman, Ph.D.
Eric is considered one of the world leading experts in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) with over 30 years of SOFC experience, including developing the basis of Redox’s SOFC technology and in recognition being honored with the Sir William Grove Award (named for the inventor of the fuel cell) and the Fuel Cell Seminar Award. He is Director of the Maryland Energy Innovation Institute and the Crentz Centennial Chaired Professor in Energy Research at the University of Maryland. He is a Fellow of The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the American Ceramic Society, serves on the Board of Directors of ECS and was appointed by the Governor to the Board of Directors of the Maryland Clean Energy Center. He has a PhD in Materials Science from Stanford and a BS in Chemical Engineering from U.C. Berkeley and more than 250 scientific publications and 17 patents on SOFC materials, technology, and performance.
Greg Jackson, Ph.D.
Systems & Fuel Processor Advisor
Prof. Greg Jackson is the Dept. Head of Mechanical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) where he also manages a research group active in solid-oxide electrochemical systems, concentrated solar energy storage, and heterogeneous catayltic reactors. He has extensive expertise in evaluating material thermochemistry for heterogeneous reacting systems in a range of energy conversion applications including electrochemical oxidation of fuels in solid oxide fuel cells. Before joining CSM in 2013, Jackson was a faculty member for 15 years at the University of Maryland (UMD) in Mechanical Engineering and served as the Acting and Associate Director of the Energy Research Center. At UMD, he led very active research programs in fuel cell systems, catalysis, and other energy conversion applications. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University where he performed research on liquid fuel combustion. After his Ph.D., he worked at Precision Combustion Inc. where he led research and development efforts on catalytic reactors for low-NOx combustion and catalytic ignition in various applications.
