Simona Liguori, an assistant professor of chemical engineering at Clarkson College has been appointed as an Affiliate Editor of the CEJ (Chemical Engineering Journal). This worldwide journal of analysis and improvement focuses on three facets of chemical engineering: chemical response engineering, environmental chemical engineering, and supplies synthesis and processing.
Liguori got here to Clarkson in 2020. She obtained her Ph.D. and grasp of science levels in chemical engineering from College of Calabria (Italy). She continued her analysis on the Institute on Membrane Know-how (ITM-CNR) — the Italian Nationwide Lab — as a post-doctoral researcher and in 2014 joined Stanford College as a bodily science analysis affiliate.
In 2016, she was appointed as a analysis assistant professor on the Division of Chemical and Organic Engineering at Colorado Faculty of Mines, and, in 2018, she continued her profession at Worcester Polytechnic Institute within the Division of Chemical Engineering, the place she obtained a Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Ladies’s Younger Investigator Fellowship and Carbon Footprint Problem Award.
Liguori’s analysis pursuits are targeted on carbon-neutral power manufacturing and carbon seize know-how to energy a sustainable future. To attain the objectives, she proposes a wholly new avenue for gasoline separations and catalytic reactions that break the linear scaling relations whereas addressing critically vital atmosphere wants calls for. Significantly, her analysis focuses on the synthesis, improvement and software of sensible membrane reactor, the place the interactions between catalysis and separation result in a course of intensification permitting for clear power conversion at milder working situations. Metals, alloys, nanoparticles, ceramics, nitrides and carbides comprise the toolkit of supplies that may assist change the power panorama.
She has printed greater than 40 peer-reviewed papers leading to an h-index of 23 and over 1500 citations, together with Journal of Membrane Science, Environmental Science and Know-how, Progress in Power and Combustion Science, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, Environments, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Analysis, and Worldwide Journal of Hydrogen Power, amongst many different publications, ebook chapters and convention proceedings. She additionally holds two U.S. patents.
In 2020 she was named a fellow by the Analysis Company for Science Development (RSCA) for its new initiative Scialog: Adverse Emissions Science, which is co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Basis.
