Dr. Eiteman wants students to understand and apply approaches to solving technical problems rather than just memorizing information, since many problems they will encounter don’t have easy answers. At the University of Georgia College of Engineering, he teaches courses in Mass Transfer, Biochemical Engineering, and Bioseparations. Dr. Eiteman’s expertise is at the interface of metabolic engineering, bioprocess engineering and fermentation technology. He has also taught and engaged in research in Chennai, India at Anna University and IIT-Madras. Dr. Eiteman won the UGA Inventor of the Year Award in 2014.
