Baron Peters, Associate Professor
Department of Chemical Engineering and
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

B.S. Chemical Engineering
   University of Missouri - Columbia (1999)
B.S. Mathematics
   Univeristy of Missouri - Columbia (1999)
PhD Chemical Engineering
   Univeristy of California - Berkeley (2004)

Research interests: catalysis, nucleation, and electron transfer; statistical mechanics and electronic structure theory. In particular, we study nucleation from solution and polymorph selection, catalysis on amorphous supports, and gated electron transfer mechanisms. I coadvise students with Mike Doherty (ChE), Susannah Scott (ChE and Chem), and Joan-Emma Shea (Chem).
