Biography

Miki Santosa joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in 2008 after interning with Prometheus Energy Company. During the past three years with PNNL, he has been involved in various projects, both in analysis and technical side of the group. Most recently, Miki has been highly involved with the development of processes for conversion of biomass to higher value product on projects led by Alan Zacher and Douglas Elliott.

Research Interests

  • Process development- fast pyrolysis and catalytic upgrading of pyrolysis products to fuels and chemicals.
  • Biomass feedstock characterization with empirical validation utilizing PNNL’s pyrolysis conversion process.
  • Techno-Economic-Analysis (TEA) for fuels and chemicals production from biomass

Education and Credentials

  • B.S Chemical Engineering with specialization in biotechnology, University of Washington
