Dr. Brent Shanks, Mike and Jean Steffenson Professor in Chemical and Biological Engineering and Director of NSFs Engineering Research Center for Bio-renewable Chemicals at Iowa State University
Dr. Brent Shanks is the Mike and Jean Steffenson Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Iowa State University and Director of National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals (CBiRC). He received his B.S. degree from Iowa State University in 1983 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the California Institute of Technology in 1985 and 1988, respectively. From 1988 to 1999 he worked as a Research Engineer and Department Manager in the Catalyst Department at the Shell Chemical Company technology center in Houston, Texas. While at Shell, he was involved in the development and commercialization of catalysts used in petrochemicals production. He joined the faculty at Iowa State University in 1999 where his work has primarily involved the research and development of novel heterogeneous catalyst system for efficiently converting biological-based feedstocks to chemicals and fuels.
