Dr. J. Douglas Way is currently Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, where he has been a faculty member since 1993. He received his Ph.D. and undergraduate degree in chemical engineering at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Previously, he was a chemical engineering faculty member at Oregon State University, a technical staff member at SRI International in Menlo Park, CA, and at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, CO. The central theme to all of his research projects is the application, study, and synthesis of new materials such as metals (Pd, V, Ta, Nb and their alloys), microporous oxides, as well as rubbery and ionic polymers for use in novel separation processes. The separation processes currently under study in my laboratory include inorganic membranes, catalytic membrane reactors, surface modified porous oxides, and polymer membranes applied to energy, environmental and chemical processing applications.
