Meet Baker


Education

  • M.S. Chemical Engineering, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville
  • B.S. Chemical Engineering, Virginia Tech

Research Interests

Baker's research interests include choice and decision making, especially relating to first-year engineering students’ selection of and persistence in engineering majors. He is also interested in using large datasets, like MIDFIELD, to investigate enrollment patterns in engineering. His prior research in chemical engineering focused on the sustainable production of molecular hydrogen using protein-protein fusions.
