Madelyn Ball

Assistant Professor - Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

Madelyn Ball joined the faculty at West Virginia University in 2021. Her research interests are in the area of heterogeneous catalysis, focusing on design of well controlled nanoparticle materials, spectroscopic characterization, and reaction kinetics. These fundamental approaches to heterogeneous catalysis are applied to CO2 and natural gas conversion reactions to facilitate sustainable chemical production.
