Short Bio

Moshe Sheintuch is a Professor Emeritus at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology, Israel. He was a chair professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Technion, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Civil and Environmental Eng. He received his B.Sc. from the Technion and his PhD from the University of Illinois (1977). He published more than 250 papers on topics of Chemical and Catalytic Reaction Engineering, mainly on catalytic reactor stability and dynamics, reactor design, catalytic kinetics, rate predictions from first principles and recently on membrane reactors and hydrogen production. At Technion, Sheintuch has held administrative positions as Deputy Senior Vice President and Chairman of the department. He was the Dean of the College of Engineering in the Guangdong-Technion Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) in Shantou, Guangdong Province, China. He is a member of the European Working Party on Chemical Reaction Engineering and of Asia-Pacific Working Party on CRE.
