The CCL team is pleased to welcome Professor Beatrice Castellani from the University of Perugia. Prof. Castellani will be conducting experiments on our methane hydrate research reactor over the next couple of weeks working with Connie Aleman (CCNY ChE undergraduate student), Yegor Nikitin (CCNY PhD candidate) and Daniel Tan, research engineer. Professor Castellani’s visit continues the CCNY/University of Perugia collaboration that started in 2014 with a visit from Giacomo Rossetti (Giacomo info) who worked with Swanand Tupsakhare over the course of 5 months. Currently a CCL Alumnus, Deepak Sharma, is conducting his PhD studies with Prof. Castellani’s team at the Terni lab of the University of Perugia. Again, welcome Prof. Castellani.
