[194590007] [1945990007]]
Professor Simona Liguori

Simona Liguori, assistant professor of chemical engineering at Clarkson University, has been appointed associate editor of the CEJ (Chemical Engineering Journal). This international research and development journal focuses on three aspects of chemical engineering: chemical reaction engineering, environmental chemical engineering, and materials synthesis and processing.

Liguori came to Clarkson in 2020. He received his Ph.D. and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Calabria (Italy). She continued her research at the Institute of Membrane Technology (ITM-CNR), the Italian National Laboratory, as a postdoctoral researcher and in 2014 she joined Stanford University as a research associate in physical sciences.

In 2016, she was appointed Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, and in 2018, she continued her career at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the Department of Chemical Engineering, where she received a fellowship to young researchers and a Carbon Footprint Challenge award from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Liguori's research interests focus on carbon neutral energy production and carbon capture technology to drive a sustainable future. To achieve the goals, it proposes a completely new pathway for gas separations and catalytic reactions that break linear scale relationships while addressing the demands of critically important environmental needs. In particular, his research focuses on the synthesis, development and application of smart membrane reactors, where the interactions between catalysis and separation lead to an intensification of the process that allows the conversion of clean energy under milder operating conditions. . Metals, alloys, nanoparticles, ceramics, nitrides and carbides comprise the set of materials tools that can help change the energy landscape. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers resulting in an h-index of 23 and over 1500 citations, including the Journal of Membrane Science, Environmental Science and Technology, Progress in Energy and Combustion Science, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering , Environment, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, and International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, among many other publications, book chapters, and conference proceedings. He also holds two US patents.

In 2020 she was named a member of the Research Corporation for the Advancement of Science (RSCA) for her new initiative Scialog: Negative Emissions Science, co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
