Assistant Professor
Chemical Engineering

Steve McIntosh likes to think big. "Our goal," says the P.C. Rossin Assistant Professor of chemical engineering, "is to solve the energy crisis for everybody." McIntosh wants to do that by using the smallest of materials, nanoscale dots of cadmium sulfite, to help make fuel cheaply from water and carbon dioxide. "The holy grail of energy is, 'Can you take water and carbon dioxide and convert them to fuel?'" he says. A real-world solution, he adds, must be practical, renewable and inexpensive. More >
