Andrew is a classically trained chemical engineering with with specialties in the fields of chemical reaction engineering and materials science. He received his B.S. from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2009, and continued to pursue his Ph.D. with Professor Dauenhauer at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2014, before finally completing his postdoctoral studies with Professor Jensen at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016 when he joined the department of chemical engineering here at WPI.
Andrew's primary research focus combines a multidisciplinary approach with classical and new experimental techniques to uncover fundamental understandings in the fields of catalysis and reaction engineering for energy and pharmaceutical sciences. Utilizing microfluidics and micro-catalytic reactors, his research group aims to unlock extreme heterogeneous catalytic performance as well as study the intricacies of single crystal crystallization processes.
The Telegram & Gazette reported on Professor Michael Timko, associate professor of chemical engineering, expanding his green energy research with a $2M Department of Energy grant. Timko is teaming up on the project with Andrew Teixeira, assistant professor of chemical engineering, and Geoffrey Tompsett, assistant research professor of chemical engineering.
