Dr. Mark Anklam received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University in 1991. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University in 1993 and 1997, respectively.

In the fall of 2012, Dr. Anklam joined the College of Engineering at California Baptist University (CBU). Between 1998 and 2012, he was a faculty member of the Chemical Engineering Department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana. There he was Department Head for the Chemical Engineering Department from 2008 to 2012. He taught a variety of courses in chemical engineering including Conservation Principles and Balances, Basic Chemical Process Calculations, Fluid Mechanics, Materials Science and Engineering, Kinetics and Reactor Design, Bioseparations, and Transport Phenomena. At CBU his courses have included Engineering from a Christian
Worldview, Introduction to Engineering Design, Introductory Mathematics for Engineering Applications, Leadership Cohort, Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering I and II, Materials Engineering and Selection, Separations, Chemical Reaction Engineering, and Fluid Mechanics.

Aside from his academic experience, Dr. Anklam was a Visiting Scientist at the Reservoir Engineering Research Institute (RERI) in Palo Alto, California from 2004 to 2005 where he conducted research on the formation and inhibition of gas hydrates. From 1999 to 2001, he was a consultant for the Heritage Research Group primarily working on the processing of asphalt emulsions. From 1997 to 1998, he was a Scientist at Unilever Research in the United Kingdom where he worked on the research and development of fabric conditioners.

His research interests are primarily in the areas of interfacial phenomena and separations. He has worked on research projects involving emulsion formation and stability, the rheology of complex fluids, surfactantbased separations, polymer-surfactant interactions, gas hydrates, and particle adhesion. He is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

He enjoys hiking, sports, and reading. He is a member of the Grove Community Church in Riverside. Dr. Anklam is married to Jennifer and they have three children.
