investigator

Rachel B. Getman

Dr. Getman earned dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemical Engineering and Business Administration from Michigan Technological University in 2004. From there, she attended graduate school at the University of Notre Dame, where she earned her PhD in 2009, simulating nitric oxide oxidation on oxygen-covered transition metal catalyst surfaces under the direction of William F. Schneider. Following a postdoctoral appointment at Northwestern University with Randall Q. Snurr, studying gas adsorption in metal-organic frameworks, Dr. Getman joined the faculty in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Clemson University in 2011. Dr. Getman's email address is rgetman at g dot clemson dot edu.
