Justin M. Notestein is an Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. His reasearch team develops novel designs and syntheses of catalysts, adsorbents, and other functional materials especially for the purposes of more sustainable routes to important chemicals and fuels. The team frequently collaborates with industry and national labratories on such projects. They have developed supported metal nanoparticle catalysts, oxide catalysts, immobilized molecular catalysts, and nanocavity catalysts.
Notestein graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering.
