Biography of Suljo Linic

Suljo Linic was born in northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina. He completed his high school education in Bosnia. He was displaced from Bosnia during the Bosnian war of the 1990s. He moved to the USA in 1994 after he was awarded a faculty scholarship from West Chester University (West Chester, PA). He completed his BS degree in Physics with minors in Mathematics and Chemistry at West Chester University (PA) in the spring of 1998. In the fall of 1998, Suljo moved to the University of Delaware to study surface chemistry and catalysis under Prof. Mark Barteau in the Center for Catalytic Science and Technology. There he earned MS and PhD degrees in chemical engineering in 1999 and 2003, respectively. Early in 2003, Suljo was offered a faculty position at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Before moving to Ann Arbor to start his independent faculty career, Suljo relocated to Berlin (Germany) to work with Prof. Mathias Scheffler on ab initio simulations of chemical transformations on graphene and carbon nanotubes as a Max Planck postdoctoral fellow at the Fritz Haber Institute. Suljo started as an Assistant Professor at University of Michigan in September of 2004. He was promoted to Associate Professor in September 2010. In the September of 2014, he was promoted to Professor and was appointed the Class of 1938 Faculty Fellow. Since 2010, Suljo has also been leading Energy Systems Engineering program at Michigan. Since 2015 Suljo is also a Hans Fischer Fellows at chemistry department of Technical University in Munich.

Suljo directs a research program focused primarily on heterogeneous catalysis and surface chemistry in areas ranging from selective oxidation, to hydrocarbon reforming, to electrocatalysis and photocatalysis. His research has been recognized through multiple awards including the 2016 Parravano award by the Michigan Catalysis Society, the 2014 ACS Catalysis Lectureship awarded by the journal ACS Catalysis and the ACS Catalysis Division, the 2011 Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum Young Investigator Award, awarded by American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the 2009 ACS Unilever Award awarded by the Colloid and Surface Chemistry Division of ACS, the 2009 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award awarded by the Dreyfus Foundation, the 2008 DuPont Young Professor Award, and a 2006 NSF CAREER Award. Since 2015, Suljo has served as an associate editor of ACS Catalysis, a multi-disciplinary catalysis journal published by the American Chemical Society.
