Thu D. Nguyen

Graduate Student (PhD)

​We are interested in investigating the competitive pathways occurring in the CO2 assisted Ethane Oxidative Dehydrogenation reaction. At the core of our approach is the use of in-situ and operando vibrational spectroscopies to unravel molecular structural changes under real reaction conditions.

Graduate Student (PhD)

Our project involves the study of solvent effects is biomass processing by means of advanced spectroscopic techniques. We are particularly interested in studying the conformational change of sugars in the presence of homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic materials.
