Alexander W. Dowling is an Assistant Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA). His research combines chemical engineering, computational optimization, and uncertainty quantification to enable principled molecular-to-systems engineering of sustainable energy and environmental technologies. Applications areas include energy markets and infrastructure, carbon sequestration, shale gas utilization, and advanced separations (membranes, ionic liquids). Prof. Dowling was recently honored with an NSF CAREER award (2020) to develop new novel Bayesian hybrid modeling paradigms for optimization and uncertainty quantification. Ongoing collaborative projects include the Institute for Advanced Design of Energy Systems (IDAES - DOE), Carbon Capture Simulation for Industrial Impact (CCSI2 - DOE) and Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources (CISTAR - NSF). He holds a B.S.E from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, all in chemical engineering.
