Alexander W. Dowling

Associate Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering

Alexander W. Dowling is an Associate Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA) with a concurrent appointment in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics. His research combines chemical engineering, computational optimization, machine learning, and data science to enable principled molecular-to-systems engineering of sustainable energy and environmental technologies. Applications areas include energy markets and infrastructure, carbon sequestration, sustainable hydrogen, critical mineral recycling, and advanced separations (membranes, ionic liquids). Prof. Dowling has been recognized with an NSF CAREER award (2019), the Junior Sargent Medal from IChemE (2023), the university-wide Mentoring Award from the Graduate Student Government (2023), and two R&D 100 awards. He holds a B.S.E from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, all in chemical engineering.
