Andrew M. Rappe is a Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his A. B. in "Chemistry and Physics" summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1986, and his Ph. D. in "Physics and Chemistry" from MIT in 1992. He was an IBM Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley before starting at Penn in 1994.
Andrew received an NSF CAREER award in 1997, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 1998, and a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award in 1999. He was named a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2006.
Andrew is one of the two founding co-directors of Pennergy: the Penn Center for Energy Innovation.
His current research interests revolve around ferroelectric phase transitions in oxides, surface chemistry and catalysis of complex oxides, and the interplay between the two: a) He helped establish relationships between composition and ferroelectric phase transition temperature in bismuth-containing perovskites oxides, b) He predicted that changing chemical vapor composition above a ferroelectric oxide could reorient its polarization, c) He revealed the mechanism of domain wall motion in ferroelectric oxides, and d) He showed that changing ferroelectric polarization dramatically changes catalytic activity of supported metal films and nanoparticles.
