Bio. Dr. Peter N. Ciesielski is a Principal Scientist and Distinguished Member of Research Staff in the Renewable Resources and Enabling Sciences Center at the National Renewable Energy Lab. He has an interdisciplinary background and training and holds degrees in chemical and biological engineering from Colorado State University and materials science from Vanderbilt University. Peter’s research encompasses many aspects of bioenergy and biobased materials, including biohybrid systems, catalysis, nanobiomaterials, and production of fuel and chemical biomasses. He specializes in integrating experimental methods, particularly advanced imaging, with multiscale modeling to design, understand, and optimize processes that are central to bioenergy applications. Dr. Ciesielski leads the mesocale modeling efforts within the Consortium of Computational Physics and Chemistry, which is a collaboration of national laboratories for the utilization of computational science towards the objectives of the U.S. Department of Energy.
