Topics Trevor Can Bring to Your Classroom:
Education:B.S. in Chemical Engineering, University of Wyoming
I am currently researching the production of hydrogen as a clean energy source. When equal amounts of hydrogen are compared to other fuels, hydrogen has more energy than any other fuel. When combusted, or burned, with oxygen only water is produced. I am currently developing a catalyst that will help facilitate the production of hydrogen from natural gas. This will provide a steady supply while other forms of sustainable hydrogen production are researched. This is necessary to allow for further growth in the industry because hydrogen from fossil fuels is believed by many to be the starting point for a hydrogen economy.
I grew up around the world living in multiple countries and different continents. I swam for the University of Wyoming during my undergraduate work, and my swimming career culminated in a trip to the Olympic trials in the 400 IM where I got 56th. I just recently got married. My wife’s name is Paige, and she is a chemical engineer as well. I have always loved chemistry and the way things work on a molecular level amazes me. This has led me to enjoy chemical engineering, the practical aspects of chemistry for our world. I love Wyoming and it is a great place to go to school. I hope to be able to give back to Wyoming for all of the great things it has done for me.
