B.S., Chemical Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Greece
Dr. Flytzani-Stephanopoulos is a Distinguished Professor and the Robert and Marcy Haber Endowed Professor in Energy Sustainability in the School of Engineering at Tufts University. She joined the Chemical Engineering Faculty of Tufts University as the Raytheon Professor of Pollution Prevention in January 1994. Her previous work experience was with MIT's Department of Chemical Engineering, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. At Tufts, she directs the Nano Catalysis and Energy Laboratory, which investigates new catalyst materials for the production of hydrogen and ‘green’ chemicals. Pioneering work from her lab has demonstrated the use of single atom catalysts for reactions of interest to fuel processing, which entails efficient and sustainable use of precious metals in clean energy production, and in the commodity and value-added chemicals production with improved yields and reduced carbon footprint. Since 2002, she has served as Editor of Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, and is an Associate Editor of Science Advances. She holds ten patents and has written more than 160 technical papers. She is the recipient of a number of awards, including the Tufts Distinguished Scholar award, the Henry J. Albert award of the International Precious Metals Institute, the Giuseppe Parravano Memorial award of the Michigan Catalysis Society, the Graduate Teaching and Mentoring Award of the Tufts School of Engineering, and the Carol Tyler award of the IPMI. She is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the AAAS and the AIChE.
