Raul F. Lobo obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Costa Rica in 1989 and later moved to California to pursue graduate studies in Chemical Engineering at Caltech. He worked for one year at Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico as a postdoctoral fellow and started his academic career at the University of Delaware in 1995 where he is currently Claire D. LeClaire Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Associate Chair.

His interests span the development of novel porous materials for catalysis and separations, the chemistry of zeolites, catalysis for energy and the environment, and the scientific aspects of catalyst synthesis. He has published over one two hundred refereed reports and he is co-inventor in eleven US patents.
