Professor Iglesia is Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of Catalysis, and
Director of the Berkeley Catalysis Center. Among numerous awards,
he has recently received the 2005 George A. Olah Award in Hydrocarbon
Chemistry of the American Chemical Society and the 2005 Robert Burwell
Award of the Catalysis Society of North America
This award provides the recipient an honorarium of $5,000 as well as a stipend
to cover travel expenses.
