Professor Feinberg has been a pioneer in the rapidly emerging field of chemical reaction network theory, which aims to tie aspects of reaction network structure in a precise way to the variety of qualitative behaviors that might be engendered.

Prized by his students for his clear elucidation of complex concepts, he won Ohio State's highest teaching award, the Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching, in 2014.

He is the author of Foundations of Chemical Reaction Network Theory (Spring, 2019), a book based on ten years of research. The book will be of value to mathematicians and mathematically-inclined biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers who want to contribute to chemical reaction network theory or make use of its powerful results. Peer reviewers have cited the book as "awe-inspiring" and highly original: "There is nothing even remotely comparable in the literature."

He is no longer accepting students.
