Dr. Craig Gittleman, a technical supervisor at General Motor’s Fuel Cell Activities Division, will present “Proton-Exchange Membranes for Automotive Fuel Cell Applications” in Chemical Engineering Department, on April 7, 2006. Dr. Gittleman oversees research in the areas of membranes and ionomers for polymer electrolyte fuel cells. His research focuses on developing highly conductive, durable membranes that can achieve automotive performance and durability targets. He also has worked on on-board gasoline reformation for automotive fuel cells, developing a compact H 2 adsorption system for purifying reformed H 2 gas on-board a vehicle. Before joining GM, he spent 5 years at BOC Gases developing novel adsorbents and adsorption processes for gas separation and purification. Craig has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
