Undergrad Wins First Place in Poster Competition

Congratulations go out to Nicolas Grosso-Giordano, a senior in the department, for his first prize poster at the student poster competition at the national meeting of the AIChE this past week. His poster on "Towards Understanding Catalyst Diffusion in Biomass," based on work he performed this summer, was awarded first place in the 'Fuels, Petrochemicals, and Energy III' division.

Nicolas is also a co-author on a recent Nature Chemistry paper that Justin Notestein's group published, as described in the McCormick news article, Researchers Make Strides Toward Selective Oxidation Catalysts.

Congratulations, Nicolas and Justin!
