Caleb Class


Graduate Student


I grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana.  After graduating from high school, I made the one-hour trip to Purdue University, where I earned my degree in Chemical Engineering.  My undergraduate years included a research project on multimetallic nanoparticles, as well as an amazing year abroad at University College London, where I learned an alternate pronunciation of the word “aluminum”.  I started at MIT in Fall 2009, and I joined the Green Group in early 2010.  My research focuses on developing a kinetic model of the desulfurization of oil using supercritical water.  In my free time, I enjoy baking, running away from my problems (or just running in general), soccer, and doing my best Ian Poulter impression on the links.
