Bryan D. McCloskey joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in January 2014. He was previously a Research Staff Member at IBM Almaden Research Center, where he worked on the BATT 500 project to elucidate fundamental characteristics of electrochemical processes occurring in Li-O2 batteries. His PhD thesis, supervised by Benny Freeman at the University of Texas at Austin, focused on molecular transport through microporous and dense polymeric membranes, with a particular emphasis on membranes for water purification. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines where his research, supervised by Drs. Thomas McKinnon and Andrew Herring, focused on employing molecular beam mass spectrometry to characterize aromatic hydrocarbon formation during pyrolysis of cellulosic chars.
