Greg Jackson

Colorado School of Mines, USA

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 concentrated solar energy storage and in solid-oxide electrochemical systems. He has published broadly on materials for high-temperature catalysis and electrocatalysis for a range of energy conversion applications. 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 campus-wide Energy Research Center. At UMD, he led 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.
