Joshua Schaidle

Director of the ChemCatBio Consortium

Josh Schaidle is the director of the Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy (ChemCatBio) Consortium and is a Distinguished Member of the Research Staff at NREL. He also serves as the Chief of Staff for the Bioenergy Science and Technology Directorate and Lead for the Catalytic Carbon Transformation platform at NREL. Research within this platform ranges from atomistic-scale modeling of catalytic surfaces and reactor flow dynamics to pilot-scale verification of waste- and biomass-to-fuels and chemicals processes coupled with techno-economic analysis and life cycle assessment. He seeks to advance the catalysis and bioenergy fields by working at the interface of foundational science and applied engineering, leveraging a combined experimental and computational approach.
