- Professor Matt Neurock has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Robert Burwell Lectureship in Catalysis, a prestigious award given biennially by the North American Catalysis Society. Neurock is being recognized for his seminal contributions to the development and
application of theoretical and computational methods to elucidate catalytic mechanisms and the active sites involved. He has also pioneered first-principle kinetic Monte Carlo methods that explicitly track molecular transformations on realistic surfaces at relevant conditions.
The award consists of a plaque, an honorarium of $5,000, and travel stipend of $4,500. Neurock will lecture at most of the local catalysis clubs during the two-year period covered by this award.
