Elizabeth Vera Bernal Visiting PhD Student
School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Institute of Mechanical, Process & Energy Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, UK
Elizabeth is a PhD student at the Materials Research Institute at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and is currently spending a year abroad working at the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions. Her PhD focus is alkaline ceramics used for CO2 capture, along with CO2 conversion to added value products and syngas, via diverse catalytic reactions.
Her main research areas are Carbon capture, reaction kinetics, gas adsorption, heterogeneous catalysis, syngas production.
