Biography

Timothy L. Ward completed B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemical engineering at Montana State University, followed by a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Washington in 1989.  He spent three years working as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico (UNM) before becoming a member of the regular faculty in 1992.  His research at UNM has been focused in three areas: vapor and aerosol synthesis of materials, high-temperature metallic and ceramic membranes, and fuel cell electrode materials.  He has more than 45 referred journal papers, which have generated more than 2000 citations, several issued patents, as well as numerous conference proceedings and presentations.  Dr. Ward also has been awarded the UNM School of Engineering Teaching Award at the junior and senior level, and is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New Mexico.
