Alan S. Goldman received his B.A and Ph.D. from Columbia University. His doctoral research, conducted under the guidance of David R. Tyler, centered on the mechanisms of photoinduced organometallic reactions. As an IBM Post-doctoral Fellow in the lab of Jack Halpern at the University of Chicago, his research focused on the development and mechanistic studies of iridium polyhydride systems for the catalytic hydrogenation of esters.
Since beginning his independent career as an assistant professor at Rutgers University, awards that Alan has received include the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Distinguished New Faculty Fellowship, the Union Carbide Innovation Recognition Award, Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, Camille and the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Fellowship, the Rutgers Board of Trustees Fellowship for Scholarly Excellence, and the New Jersey Section of the American Chemical Society Pro Bono Award.
Alan served as the Chair of the 2008 Gordon Research Conference on Organometallic Chemistry and was a member of the International Advisory Committee for the International Conference on Catalysis commemorating the 100th anniversary of Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He is the winner of the 2012 ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science.
