Andrew Gellman received his B.S. in Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Thereafter, he was an ICI postdoctoral fellow at Cambridge University in Physical Chemistry. He became a faculty member of the chemistry department at the University of Illinois before joining Carnegie Mellon in 1992 where he was appointed the Lord Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1999. Andrew Gellman served as Department Head of Chemical Engineering. He promulgated a $28 million renovation of Doherty Hall. In 2012 he was appointed co-Director of Carnegie Mellon’s W.E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation.
Jill Millstone received her B.S. in Chemistry (and English) from Carnegie Mellon University and her Ph.D in Materials Chemistry from Northwestern University. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California Berkeley before joining the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. She has received several awards, including an NSF CAREER award, a Cottrell Scholar Award, and a Unilever Award for Outstanding Young Investigator in Colloid and Surfactant Science. She has also received numerous honors as a student. She is a member of scientific societies such as the Materials Research Society, the American Chemical Society, and the Association for Women in Science.
John Norton received his B.E. in Chemical Engineering from the New South Wales (N.S.W.) in Sydney, Australia. After working for two years as a technologist at the Shell Oil Refinery, he switched fields and pursued and obtained his Ph.D. in the History and Philosophy of Science also at the University of N.S.W. After a brief postdoc at the the Einstein Papers Project in Princeton, he joined the University of Pittsburgh as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science in 1984 and stayed in the Center for Philosophy of Science ever since.
Ken Jordan received his B.A. in Chemistry from Northeastern University and then his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He then was an Instructor and then an Assistant Professor of Engineering and Applied Science at Yale before joining the University of Pittsburgh in 1978. He has received numerous academic honors, and the 2014 Kenneth Jordan Festschrift Issue of the Journal of Physical Chemistry was dedicated to his lifetime achievements. He has held several positions on editorial, advisory, and executive boards, and is currently a Co-Director of the Center for Simulation & Modeling at Pitt.
