Tom Gregory received his BS in chemical engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 1978 and his MS in 1979, and spent 34 years at Dow Chemical in a variety of R&D roles ranging from bench-scale basic research to production-scale process technology development. A significant portion of his career has involved chemical process conceptualization, analysis, development, and scale-up of technologies including ceramic powder production via co-precipitation, monomer production via catalytic and electrochemical methodologies, condensation polymerization via reactive extrusion, suspension polymerization to produce unique superabsorbent polymers, polymer drying technology, recovery and purification of fermentation-derived products via electrodialysis and simulated moving bed chromatography, and biochemical processes for production of organic chemicals. He is globally-recognized for his pioneering work in rechargeable magnesium battery technology and has also been involved in development of novel lithium ion battery and fuel cell-related technology. Tom retired from Dow in 2013 and formed Borealis Technology Solutions LLC, a consulting company specializing in chemical and electrochemical process analysis, design, and scale-up and electrochemical energy generation and storage. He has been a member of both AIChE and The Electrochemical Society since 1978 and has served ECS at both the local and national level, and is the 2015/2016 Chair of the Mid-Michigan AIChE local section. Tom frequently serves on proposal review panels for the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy and is a reviewer for a number of scientific journals.
