Biography

Arthur Ragauskas held the first Fulbright Chair in Alternative Energy and is a Fellow of the International Academy of Wood Science and TAPPI His research program at Georgia Institute of Technology is seeking to understand and exploit innovative sustainable bioresources This multifaceted program is targeted to develop new and improved applications for nature’s premiere renewable biopolymers for biomaterials biofuels biopower and biobased chemicals His research program is sponsored by NSF USDA DOE GA Traditional Industry Program a consortium of industry partners and several fellowship programs His Fulbright sponsored activities at Chalmers University of Technology Sweden were focused on the forest biorefinery and new biofuel conversion technologies for lignocellulosics Currently Dr Ragauskas manages a research group of thirty graduate students postdoctoral research fellows a research scientist and visiting scientists He has collaborative research projects with several GA Tech faculty and is a program leader for a GA Tech Focused Research Program in Biofuels BioPower and Biomaterials In addition he is the GA Tech team leader for Biological Energy Science Center BESC research efforts theme leader for the GA Tech Imperial College London and Oak Ridge National Laboratory AtlanTICC Alliance in Biomass to BioFuels BioProducts and BioPower program and team leader for an industrial consortium program titled Fiber Modification Fiber Fiber Bonding His students have won several awards including the ACS graduate research award Ragauskas has published 220 papers patents and conference proceedings Ragauskas is an Associate Editor for Petroleum Environmental Biotechnology Biofuels Bioproducts and Biorefining Biofuels BioEnergy Research Industrial Biotechnology Taiwan Journal of Forest Service Industrial Biotechnology Holzforschung Journal of Biobased Materials and Bioenergy Journal of Petroleum Technology and Alternative Fuels The Open Biotechnology Journal and J Wood Chemistry and Technology He is an editorial board member of Sustainability and Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology and a reader for Nature Ragauskas has served on several advisory boards and review panels including Austrian Science Fund European Commission Research Directorate National Science Academy J Paul Getty Trust NSF USDA DOE ARAPE NSERC BARD FIRST TAPPI Research Management Committee Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research Swedish VINN Excellence Center Swedish Knowledge Foundation VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland ERA Chemistry Swiss National Science Foundation Finnish Academy of Science Norway Research Council The Technology Foundation STW and Singapore Agency for Science Technology and Research Dr Ragauskas has been an invited visiting professor at Universidade da Beira Interior Portugal Chalmers University of Technology Sweden Royal Institute of Technology STFi Stockholm Sweden and South China University of Technology China

Research Interest

Development of translational green chemistry for the sustainable conversion of bioresources to biofuels, biopower, biobased materials and chemicals. As such, Ragauskas’ core belief is that a professor can only be as successful as the students he educates, mentors and graduates. As such, Ragauskas academic mission has been, and remains, the cornerstone of his career objectives. These career objectives includeDevelop a challenging and enriching undergraduate educational and research experience that facilitates the intellectual development of science, engineering and liberal arts students and introduces these students to the exciting opportunities and challenges focused about the development of the sustainable biorefineryRecruit, educate, and develop the next generation of scientists that will be nationally internationally recognized leaders in sustainable chemistry of biofuels biomaterials, biopower, from renewable bioresourcesDevelop a nationally internationally recognized research center for sustainable green chemistry of bioresources and their conversion to innovative biofuels biopower bio-based materials & chemicals in a modern biorefinery.
