George W. Huber Harvey Spangler ProfessorUniversity of Wisconsin-MadisonGeorge W. Huber is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at University of Massachusetts-Amherst. George is developing new processes to make renewable fuels and chemicals. He is co-founder of Anellotech, a biofuel company focused on catalytic fast pyrolysis a technology to convert biomass into aromatics. George has authored over 56 peer-reviewed publications and has 7 patent applications. He has received over $13 million in competitive federal grants to develop new technologies for biomass conversion including the NSF CAREER award. George did a post-doctoral stay with Avelino Corma at the Polytechnical University of Valencia, Spain. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from University of Wisconsin-Madison (2005) where he helped develop aqueous-phase catalytic processes for biofuels production under the guidance of James Dumesic. He obtained his B.S. (1999) and M.S.(2000) degrees from Brigham Young University, where he studied Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis under the direction of Calvin H. Bartholomew.
