Meet a Scientist! Dr. David Hackleman on Biofuels


Dr. David Hackleman

Chemical Engineering

Oregon State University

Dr. Hackelman will demonstrate extracting essential oils from plants and discuss how biofuels are made and used.

David Hackleman holds a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Oregon State University and a PhD in Chemistry from the University  of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He retired from Hewlett-Packard as “Chief Technologist” in the Technology Development Operation, famous for the development of the Thermal Ink-Jet Printer where his team developed the inks. He returned to Oregon State University as the Linus Pauling Chair in Chemical Engineering in 2003. He has been teaching a senior projects course in OSU's Electrical and Computer Engineering department since 1999. Hackleman is a former president of the Oregon Section of the Electrochemical Society, past recipient of the Duane Marshall Special Service Award from the Oregon Science Teachers Association, former Associate Editor of Research Spectrum, the Northwest Journal of Student Science, and a member of the Board of Trustees for the National Youth Science Foundation.

In 2006 Hackleman drove his 3/4-ton Dodge 4x4 pickup truck across the country and back running only on biofuels. Hackleman usually uses the truck to transport his family’s horses in trailers, but on this trip he transported his knowledge – and passion – about the green-burning diesel substitute.

      Guess I should have written that as a reply (so to repeat myself): We've been starting to gather at 6 PM but don't start the discussion until 6:30 PM. That give people time to get a snack, visit, etc.
