Alan W. Weimer joined the faculty of the University of Colorado in 1996 after a 16-year career with the Dow Chemicals. He is an award-winning inventor on 31 issued U.S. patents and an author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications. He has successfully commercialized his academic discoveries, among others high-temperature processing to produce advanced materials during his time with Dow Chemicals. He was named University of Colorado Inventor of the Year in 2004 and received both the campus-wide and the College of Engineering and Applied Science Faculty Research Awards in 2005. He is recipient of the 2005 US Department of Energy Hydrogen Program R&D Award for developing solar-thermal technology to split water, the 2009 American Institute of Chemical Engineer's (AIChE) Thomas Baron Award in Fluid-Particle Systems for his pioneering effort to functionalize fine particles with thin films, and the 2010 AIChE Excellence in Process Development Research Award for his persistence to commercialize his academic discoveries.
