Dr. Murphy has been a member of the chemical engineering faculty since 1977. Prior to his arrival at Colorado State, he held research and teaching positions with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, the University of Missouri, and Iowa State University. Dr. Murphy's research activities include both fundamental and applied studies in biochemical and environmental engineering. Areas of particular interest have been bioconversion of lignocellulosics to fuels and chemicals, solid-state fermentation of carbohydrate substrates, and bioremediation of contaminated soils. Dr. Murphy also serves as Director of the department's NSF-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates Program in Bioprocess Engineering. Dr. Murphy retired in 2005, and still spends a decent amount of time on campus when he is not traveling the world.
