PULLMAN, Wash. – Jean-Sabin McEwen, an assistant professor in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, has been elected to the Early Career Advisory Board of ACS Catalysis, a prestigious journal in the field of catalysis.

Early Career Advisory Board (ECAB) members are selected by the journal’s associate editors and Editorial Advisory Board. ECAB members represent outstanding emerging researchers who work in different areas of catalysis. Their roles include advising the journal of emerging trends in their research areas and ensuring the journal’s content is up to date with the newest developments in the catalysis field.

McEwen was nominated to the board in recognition of his emerging leadership in catalysis by members of the global catalysis community.

Last year, McEwen received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award for his work in developing a model for predicting behavior of low-temperature exhaust catalysts in real-world conditions.

His work also has been funded by federal agencies and endowed funds, including the Department of Energy’s Office of Science Catalysis program and the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund. He is also a recipient of five NSF grants and has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed journal papers.

He joined the Voiland School in 2012 and holds a Ph.D. in physics from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
