Dr. Yablonsky is an Associate Research Professor of Chemistry at Parks College and the College of Arts and Sciences. Previously (1997-2007), he was a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering as Washington University in St. Louis.

Gregory Yablonsky is a world recognized expert in the area of chemical kinetics and chemical engineering, in catalytic technology particularly, which is one of main driving forces of sustainable development. He has authored two monographs and more than 200 peer-reviewed papers on these topics.  In March 2010, Yablonsky was granted by the honorary doctor degree from the University of Ghent (Belgium). Dr. Guy Marin, of Belgium, who presented Dr. Yablonsky during the ceremony, called Yablonsky a “scientific catalyst” and “an inexhaustible source of scientific curiosity, always pushing colleagues towards new challenges and insights.”

Research Interests

Dr. Yablonsky’s research interests include heterogeneous catalysis, kinetics of complex chemical reactions mathematical modeling of chemical reactors and technological processes, history and methodology of science.
