Alexander (Alex) Dowling is an Associate Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) with a concurrent appointment in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics. His research combines chemical engineering, computational optimization, machine learning, and data science organized in three research themes: (1) molecular-to-systems (multiscale) modeling and optimization, (2) optimal design of experiments and statistical inference, and (3) machine learning for bridging timescales. Applications domains include energy markets and infrastructure, integrated energy systems, carbon sequestration, sustainable hydrogen, critical mineral recycling, and advanced separations (membranes, ionic liquids). Prof. Dowling has been recognized with an NSF CAREER award (2019), the Junior Sargent Medal from IChemE (2023), the university-wide Mentoring Award from the Graduate Student Government (2023), and two R&D 100 awards. He holds a B.S.E from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, all in chemical engineering.
