Chemical Engineering students’ work featured internationally

Amin Taheri and Amin Aziznia, Ph.D. students in Professor Elod Gyenge’s group in the Dept. of Chemical and Biological Engineering, have had their work featured internationally.

Taheri developed a proposal titled Multi-function Photocatalytic Desalination, which was voted among the top ten most popular in the Create the Future Design Contest 2012 organized by NASA Tech Briefs. As a result, he was invited to present and discuss his idea with officials from NASA Magazine, Tech Briefs Media Group as well as with industry and academia. For more information, click here.

Aziznia’s Ph.D. research is focused on the development of a new type of mixed reactant gas-liquid fuel cell design referred to as the Swiss-roll design. His publication in Journal of Power Sources 212, 154-160 (2012) has been selected by the Renewable Energy Global Innovations as a key scientific article. For more information, click here.
