NREL biofuel researchers elevated to senior research fellow

May 10, 2018 |

In Colorado, Robert McCormick, who earned his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Wyoming and joined NREL nearly 17 years ago, has been elevated to senior research fellow.  Along with other current research fellows, these individuals will advise NREL executive management on the strategic direction of science and technology research and ensure NREL’s work continues to meets the highest standards for quality and objectivity. A principal engineer and platform leader in the Fuels Performance and Combustion Science Group-a group he created, McCormick leads the research team for advanced biofuels R&D. His research has included studies on biodiesel chemistry effects that led to the development of fuel quality standards, demonstration that certain oxygenates can function as hydrocarbon equivalent drop in fuels, and the concept that fuels and engines can be co-optimized as a system.
