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.
