About Angela:
As Associate Dean since 2018, Dr. Lueking initiates and supports multi-investigator and junior faculty proposals. She served as Program Director of Molecular Separations at the National Science Foundation from 2016-2018, including topics in purification of industrial chemicals, drinking water, and biopharmaceuticals. She was the point person for two disciplinary inter-agency National Academy Studies, and led a program to reenergize mid-career faculty. At Penn State for 15 years, she held joint appointments in Energy & Mineral Engineering and Chemical Engineering, and conducted research in hydrogen storage that coupled material development, advanced in situ characterization, and ab initio molecular modeling. She holds patents in low-pressure synthesis of nanocrystalline diamond and carbon-based hydrogen clathrates. Her accomplishments led to selection as an International Marie Curie Fellowship in 2012, one of twenty-five American scientists to receive this honor. Beyond research, she was co-Principal Investigator on a graduate education and outreach program, and co-authored the 2018 general education textbook “Science of the Earth, Climate and Energy”. She holds a BS degree in chemical engineering from the University of Nebraska, and from the University of Michigan, an MS degree in environmental engineering and MS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering.
