Megan Witzke

Witzke is a member of Assistant Professor David Flaherty’s lab. Her research aims to¬†improve the catalytic conversion of biomass derivatives to higher value chemicals¬†by determining the reaction mechanism and underlying factors that control catalyst selectivity.

She entered the ChBE graduate program in Fall 2013 after earning a BS in Chemical Engineering from Case Western.

The fund was originally created by Bert A. Gayman, a mechanical engineering graduate of the University of Illinois with a gift of shares of Chicago-based Link-Belt Company, later acquired by FMC Corporation. FMC recently merged with Technip to create TechnipFMC, a global leader in subsea, onshore/offshore and surface projects. The fund supports scholarships, fellowships and research.
