Energy Engineering & Systems Analysis
Alfred P. Sattelberger, Argonne's Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Energy Engineering & Systems Analysis, has been elected to the 2010 class of Fellows of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
The ACS Fellows Program recognizes members for their outstanding achievements in and contributions to the chemical sciences. Sattelberger and the rest of the 2010 class will be honored at a special ceremony during the ACS National Meeting in Boston on August 23, 2010.
With more than 161,000 members, the ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information.
Sattelberger has been at Argonne since 2006 and has served as the ALD for Physical, Biological and Computing Sciences, ALD for Physical Sciences and Interim ALD for Applied Sciences and Technology.
Currently, he oversees the Energy Engineering & Systems Analysis Directorate (EESA), which is responsible for Argonne’s programs in energy research—including energy storage, renewable energy, energy efficiency and nuclear energy—and national security.
Sattelberger obtained a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Indiana University and was a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at Case Western Reserve University. Prior to joining Argonne, he was a faculty member in the Chemistry Department at the University of Michigan and a staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory. At Los Alamos, he held several scientific management positions and was named a Senior Laboratory Fellow in 2005.
His personal research interests span actinide coordination and organometallic chemistry, fundamental technetium chemistry, metal-metal bonding and catalysis. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a past chair of the Inorganic Chemistry Division of the ACS and holds faculty appointments at Northwestern University and the Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He also lectures occasionally at the University of Chicago.
