Graduate Research AssistantAdvised by Professor Rajamani Gounder
- Valla Research Group – University of Connecticut, Research Assistant (2014 - 2016)
I began my studies in chemical engineering at the University of Connecticut. I was first introduced to research in catalysis as an undergraduate while working with Prof. Ioulia Valla. In Prof. Valla’s group, I worked on tailoring hierarchical Y and ZSM-5 zeolites for biomass catalytic fast pyrolysis. In the fall of 2016, I joined the Gounder group to further my research studies in catalysis.
My current research project is focused on methane activation on metal-exchanged zeolites.
