Dr. Manish Shetty Highly Active Acid-Base Catalysis Team Catalysis Science
Physical Sciences Division

Manish earned a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At MIT, he worked on developing structure-reactivity relationships and reaction mechanisms for the hydrodeoxygenation of biomass-derived model compounds using reducible metal oxides. His research interests in energy conversion and sustainability focus on catalyst design and reaction mechanisms through the development of structure-reactivity relationships, reaction kinetics, and electronic structure calculations. As a postdoctoral research associate at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, he is conducting research into developing a mechanistic understanding of the deoxygenation and valorization of compounds derived from the electrochemical hydrogenation of bio-oil.
