Audaldo “Aldo” Ponce, a faculty member in the Materials Science and Engineering Department with an affiliate position in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD), was promoted to senior lecturer this week. 

“I would like to thank everyone for their support since I joined the Clark School - I am greatly humbled,” said Dr. Ponce.

Ponce - originally from Chile - received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Kansas State University in 2002. He joined the faculty at UMD in 2013, although he was research associate on campus for several years prior.

Since then, his research interests have included materials science, inorganic chemistry, catalysis, surface science, life science and nano-chemistry. Ponce teaches various courses including ENMA 312, ENMA 362 and ChBE 437, and is always available to help faculty and students with their characterization needs.
