PrISMa’s Principal Investigators

Prof. Susana Garcia
Project Coordinator

I am the Associate Director on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (RCCS) and Full Professor in Chemical Engineering at HWU. My group has the ambition to change the paradigm on how novel processes based on advanced materials are developed through the integration of process engineering and basic science.

Research Interests: CCS, advanced solid sorbents, materials screening, sorbents-performance evaluation, efficient separation processes for energy, industrial and environmental applications.

Prof. Berend Smit
Principle Investigator

I am the director of the laboratory for molecular simulation (LSMO) and adjunct professor of Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley. My research focuses on the application and development of novel molecular simulation techniques, with emphasis on energy related applications. 
Research interests: molecular simulations, metal organic frameworks, carbon capture, materials genomics
