Kimberly A. Gray
Kimberly A. Gray is the Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northwestern Univeristy. She is also a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering in addition to being a Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering. Gray's areas of expertise are environmental catalysis and physicochemical processes in natural and engineered environmental systems with particular focus on energy and urban sustainability applications. She studies the synthesis, characterization and performance of photo-active materials, principally TiO2-based nanocomposites for solar fuel production and water/air treatment. She studies the ways in which detailed understanding of ecological relationships improves our ability to predict chemical transfer in aquatic systems and ultimately human health risks.
Gray graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a Ph.D. in Geography and Environmental Engineering.
