Bailey Mcauley

Amama earned a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from Yokohama National University in Japan, followed by postdoctoral research at Yale University (Department of Chemical Engineering ) and Purdue University (Birck Nanotechnology Center). Before joining the faculty at K-State, he was a research scientist at the Air Force Research Laboratory, WPAFB. His research focuses on heterogeneous catalysis, controlled synthesis and engineering of nanomaterials, energy storage, and environmental remediation.
