Ian C. Bourg

Ian Bourg received his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Process Engineering from the National Institute of Applied Sciences in Toulouse (France) in 1999. He received his doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 2004. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago and a career-track Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In 2015, he joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University as an Assistant Professor. Since 2011, he has been on the executive committee of the Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2, a DOE-supported Energy Frontiers Research Center. The goal of Dr. Bourg’s research is to develop a fundamental understanding of the properties of water at interfaces. At the present time, his group is using atomistic and continuum modeling techniques to probe the nanoscience of geologic carbon sequestration, the aquatic geochemistry of nanoporous media (clay interlayers, nanoporous silica), and the molecular scale origins of kinetic isotope effects.
