Resonate Award recipient for catalyzing chemical reactions for renewable energy production and storage.
Thomas Francisco Jaramillo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. His Resonate Award winning work focuses on the creation of materials at the atomic scale that drive chemical reactions important for renewable energy production and storage. His endeavors have led to the discovery of stable, earth-abundant catalysts for renewable hydrogen production from water and for converting CO2 into fuels and chemicals in a sustainable manner. Jaramillo’s materials can replace expensive and scarce metals currently used, and thus improve the economics of sustainable fuel production. Jaramillo did his undergraduate research work at Stanford University and received his PhD from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He has received many honors for his work in electrocatalysis.Read More
