Ann Anderson, the Agnes S. MacDonald Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Bradford Bruno, professor of mechanical engineering, Mary Carroll, the Dwane W. Crichton Professor of Chemistry, and Joana Santos '20, post-baccalaureate researcher, attended the 2020 CLEERS Workshop. This conference, which focuses on studies of exhaust emission control devices and is attended by researchers from industry, academia, and national laboratories, is ordinarily held in Detroit, Mich., but was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Union researchers authored a poster, “Effect of Slurry Processing on the Properties of Catalytically Active Aerogel Material,” with Anderson as presenting author. Diana Lang, a former post-baccalaureate researcher, also co-authored the presentation, which was part of the Union College Aerogel Team's current research into catalytic aerogels for automotive pollution mitigation. The research is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Partnership for Innovation Technology Transfer program.
