Silvia Marino, a Ph.D. student in Professor Bill Epling’s catalysis lab, is working to improve gasoline-engine aftertreatment systems.

 

Silvia Marino, a Ph.D. student in Professor Bill Epling’s environmental catalysis lab, has received two competitive travel awards this spring to attend professional conferences.

Marino was awarded a CATL-ChemCatBio Graduate Student Travel Award to attend the Spring 2022 ACS National Meeting in March, where she spoke on her research, “Rh catalyst structural changes during CO oxidation.” The award is given by the Catalysis Science and Technology (CATL) Division of the American Chemical Society.

Marino also will present a poster, “Evaluating the effect of Pt-Rh interactions on activity and stability of Pt-Rh/Al2O3 three way catalysts,” at NAM27, the 27th North American Catalysis Society Meeting, in May. Her travel will be supported by a Kokes Award.Both projects investigate catalysts to improve the aftertreatment system of gasoline-engine cars to reduce pollution.
