MIT-ITQ Valencia Collaboration on High-Throughput Methodology for the Synthesis of Catalytic Porous Materials

We receive MISTI-Global grant award for a collaboration between:

  • Mircea Dinca, Assistant Professor, Chemistry
  • Yuriy Roman, Assistant Professor, Chemical Engineering
  • Avelino Corma, Professor, Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica de Valencia, Spain

We welcome our new members – Sean, Helen, and Karthik

    • Sean is from West Chester, Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia. He is interested in the development of electrocatalytic materials for renewable energy applications.
    • Helen grew up in Seattle, Washington, and enjoys swimming, snowboarding, playing the violin, and drawing. She went to the California Institute of Technology where she received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering, and is excited to start research on zeolites at MIT.
    • Karthik joins us from the California Institute of Technology
