Dr. Addison Killean Stark, ARPA-E Fellow

Dr. Addison Killean Stark currently serves as an ARPA-E Fellow focusing on advanced thermochemical conversion to fuels and chemicals, energy innovation in agricultural systems, and intensification of energy conversion reactor designs. Stark completed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT where he was a member of the Reacting Gas Dynamics Laboratory lead by Professor Ahmed F. Ghoniem.  For his Ph.D. thesis, Stark elucidated the role of transport phenomena on the thermochemical conversion of biomass in fluidized bed reactors (gasification and pyrolysis).

While at MIT, Stark served as co-president of the MIT Energy Club, content director of the 2010 MIT Energy Conference and as a Teaching Assistant for Sustainable Energy, an interdisciplinary graduate-level survey course of energy technology, systems and policy analysis.

Stark also holds S.M. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Technology and Public Policy from MIT. He received a B.S. and a B.A. in Mathematics and Chemistry respectively from the University of Iowa.
