Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Ed Wolfrum currently serves as principal investigator of the Feedstock Conversion Interface Consortium (FCIC). The FCIC is a collaborative effort of the U.S. Department of Energy's Bioenergy Technologies Office, which includes interdisciplinary researchers from nine national laboratories to quantify, understand, and manage variability in biomass from the field through downstream conversion and to understand how feedstock composition, structure, and behavior impacts overall system performance. As the overall scientific and technical leader of the FCIC, he works with all FCIC members to ensure superior performance and alignment of all FCIC work with the vision of the FCIC.

Research Interests

Ed’s research interests include understanding how low-cost, rapid, non-destructive spectroscopic techniques combined with multivariate statistical analysis can be used for rapid biomass characterization. His key technical competencies include biomass compositional analysis using both conventional and rapid analysis methods, low-temperature biomass conversion, experimental design and exploratory data analysis, and multivariate statistics.
