Welcome to GeraldMacala.com

I am a materials chemist, currently working on a catalysis project to convert natural fats into biodiesel.

You can read more about this effort at my company homepage http://www.catallowyst.com


I am also working on science policy issues under a fellowship from the UCSB Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS).

I am developing advanced scripts for harvesting information from the internet to help us understand the process of technological innovation.

We are also concerned with the environmental effects of nanoparticles such as these and these.

You can see some of the results of this effort on the CNS webpage http://www.cns.ucsb.edu
