Dr. Michel Dupuis has extensive experience in research in theoretical and computational chemistry. His research interests lie in the development and application of methods of theoretical and computational chemistry to the characterization of the electronic structure and reactivity of molecules, solids, and interfaces in chemical processes relevant to environmental chemistry, electrochemistry, biochemistry, catalysis, and nanoscience. He leads and/or contributes to several fundamental science projects supported by DOE's Basic Energy Sciences. He is a co-PI in the Energy Frontier Research Center on Molecular Electrocatalysis located at PNNL, where he coordinates the Center's theory and computation efforts.

Dr. Dupuis is a Laboratory Fellow in the Catalysis Science Group of the Physical Sciences Division at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Dr. Dupuis was elected a Member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences in 2005, a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2008, and a Fellow of the American Association of the Advancement of Science in 2009. Dr. Dupuis is an Adjunct Professor at Washington State University (Tri-Cities).

Before joining PNNL in 1995, Dr. Dupuis was a Senior Scientist at IBM-Kingston, New York. From 1978 to 1984, Dr. Dupuis was a staff member of the National Resource for Computation in Chemistry at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

He is the main author of the widely used HONDO program and a founding author of the GAMESS program for quantum chemical simulations.
