Principal Investigator

Jean M. Andino, PhD ,P.E


Prof. Andino’s research focuses on chemical kinetics and mechanisms as applied to air quality (atmospheric chemistry and air pollution control) and energy themes. She worked at Ford Motor Company characterizing the reactions taking place on novel materials to be used in catalytic converters and determining the ambient air quality impacts of fuels and alternative fuels. Prior to being recruited to Arizona State University, Prof. Andino was a tenured Environmental Engineering Sciences (EES) faculty member at the University of Florida (UF). She was the first woman to be promoted and tenured in the history of EES at UF. 

Prof. Andino received her doctorate from the California Institute of Technology in chemical engineering and bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in engineering sciences. She has published numerous journal articles, is actively engaged in patenting and commercialization efforts, and is a registered professional engineer. She has been widely recognized for her work by being invited to join high profile panels or boards, including multiple National Academies panels. In addition, she has earned numerous prestigious national and local awards, including a Fulbright Scholar Award, three NASA Space Act Awards, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and Faculty of the Year Award from the National Society of Black Engineers, among others. In 2017, Prof. Andino was awarded the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers STAR Educator of the Year award (a national award).
