Congratulations to Molly Koehle, a winner of the CCP Student Poster Competition. The Catalysis Club of Philadelphia is very proud of this event and views it as one of the region’s premier opportunities for graduate students to showcase their work with the local chemical industry professionals. All graduate students whose work is either directly or indirectly related to catalysis science and technology are encouraged to submit entries. The competition is an annual event and restricted to graduate students only. Post-docs and senior undergraduates are welcome to present their posters but are not eligible for prizes.

UD’s Bingjun Xu awarded AFOSR Young Investigator grant

October 21, 2016
The University of Delaware’s Bingjun Xu is one of 58 scientists and engineers across the U.S. to receive a three-year research grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Young Investigator Program (YIP). The awards this year total $20.8 million. The YIP is open to scientists and engineers at research institutions who received Ph.D. or equivalent degrees in the past five years and who show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research. The objective of the program is to foster creative basic research in science and engineering, enhance early career development of outstanding young investigators, and increase opportunities for the young investigators to recognize the Air Force mission and the related challenges in science and engineering. Xu’s research will focus on catalyst development to enable flameless combustion of hydrogen in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
