September 6, 2016

Jonathan Mathews, associate professor of energy and mineral engineering, was named a 2016 Fellow by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The ACS Fellows Program recognizes members for their outstanding contributions to science and the profession, and service to the ACS community. He was honored during the ACS National Meeting and Exposition, held Aug. 21-25 in Philadelphia.

“I’m incredibly honored,” said Mathews. “To be one of only 57 inductees in a society of nearly 157,000 members speaks to the work that my colleagues and I have performed for our fields and the society.”

Mathews served as the inaugural co-chair of the ACS Energy and Fuels Technical Division, which was formed after the merger of two divisions, Fuel Chemistry and Petroleum. He also assisted the division with strategic planning and now serves as the membership chair. <Read the full article on Penn State News>
