Clarkson professor named associate editor of Chemical Engineering Journal | St. Lawrence County
POTSDAM – Simona Liguori, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Clarkson University, has been named Associate Editor of the CEJ (Chemical Engineering Journal).
This international journal for research and development focuses on three aspects of chemical engineering: chemical reaction engineering, environmental chemical engineering, and material synthesis and processing.
Liguori came to Clarkson in 2020. She received her Ph.D. and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Calabria (Italy). She continued her research at the Institute for Membrane Technology (ITM-CNR) – the Italian National Laboratory – as a postdoctoral fellow and in 2014 moved to Stanford University as a research assistant.
In 2016, she was appointed research assistant to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. In 2018 she continued her career at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the Department of Chemical Engineering, where she received a Worcester Women’s Young Investigator Fellowship and the Polytechnic Institute’s Carbon Footprint Challenge Award.
Liguori’s research interests focus on climate-neutral energy generation and carbon capture technology to drive a sustainable future. To achieve the goals, she proposes an entirely new route for gas separations and catalytic reactions that break the linear scaling relationships while meeting important environmental requirements. Her research focuses in particular on the synthesis, development and application of intelligent membrane reactors, in which the interactions between catalysis and separation lead to a process intensification that enables clean energy conversion under milder operating conditions. Metals, alloys, nanoparticles, ceramics, nitrides and carbides form the toolkit of materials that can contribute to changing the energy landscape.
She has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles resulting in an h-index of 23 and over 1500 citations, including Journal of Membrane Science, Environmental Science and Technology, Advances in Energy and Combustion Science, ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, Environments, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research and International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, among many other publications, book chapters and conference proceedings. It also holds two US patents.
In 2020 she was named a Fellow by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RSCA) for her new Scialog: Negative Emissions Science initiative, which is co-sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
