Professional experience

Andrew Duncan attended the University of Kansas where he received a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering in 2007. After receiving his doctorate in 2015, Duncan was an instructor at KU until 2017.


While at the University of Kansas, Duncan worked in a multidisciplinary group consisting of chemical, mechanical and environmental engineers as part of the Feedstock to Tailpipe initiative. The initiative investigated growth conditions, fuel production methods, fuel properties, engine performance and emissions testing for multiple feedstocks. Duncan produced and analyzed renewable diesel fuels, with the majority of his dissertation research focused on high-pressure (131 MPa) viscosity experimentation, modeling and physical property prediction.

Academic highlights

Duncan has authored or co-authored several peer reviewed publications, and given presentations on his work as an invited speaker at national conferences. In the spring of 2016, Duncan received the award for Outstanding Service to Undergraduate Education from the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department at KU.
