Personal Profile

Julia Curley is a postdoctoral researcher at NREL under the tutelage of Gregg Beckham and Robert Allen. She works to develop efficient and scalable systems for the chemical depolymerization of polyesters including collaborations with IBM and Amazon.  

Julia received her bachelor's in chemistry from Boston College in 2016 (summa cum laude). Her undergraduate research focused on the development of redox switchable iron complexes used to catalyze the copolymerization of lactide and epoxide to provide performance advantaged block copolymers. She then went on to earn her doctorate in inorganic chemistry from Yale University under Professor Nilay Hazari (fall 2021). Her graduate work centered around the synthesis, catalysis, and mechanistic studies of iron pincer complexes used to catalyze reactions relevant to renewable energy storage.
