Curriculum Vitae


Harry Beller is a microbiologist who serves as a Senior Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), a Director of Biofuels Pathways in DOE’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto. His research has covered a range of disciplines and topics, including the physiology and biochemistry of anaerobic bacteria (e.g., those catalyzing anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation via benzylsuccinate synthase and the redox cycling of uranium and iron), design and engineering of novel biofuel pathways, and development of mass spectrometric and biomolecular techniques to document in situ metabolism. He earned a Ph.D. and was a postdoctoral scholar in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at Stanford University.
