Dr. Jeremy T. Feaster is a Principal Investigator and Research Staff Scientist in the Materials Science Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His research focuses on using advanced manufacturing and chemical engineering to address climate change; specifically, Dr. Feaster and his team create 3D printed electrochemical reactors to convert CO2 into fuels and chemicals. Dr. Feaster earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University after completing his B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech. A passionate proponent of uplifting communities of color, he started the Jeremy T. Feaster Foundation, Inc., in 2012. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Feaster Foundation has awarded over $20,000 in scholarships to Black and underrepresented students around the nation, as well as run a nonprofit leadership and mentorship program for students who want to "lift as they climb" and start their own organizations to benefit their communities.
