The Kawajiri research group is looking for an undergraduate researcher who is interested in developing an hydrogen energy production process over multiple semesters. We are working with the Atomistic Simulations and Energy Laboratory in Mechanical Engineering for thermogravimetric testing. The goal of this testing will be to identify high preforming oxygen storage materials (OSM) for hydrogen production. Currently this lab is leading an ARPA-E in the Department of Energy focused on the construction of a concentrated solar powered reactor. This reactor will utilize an OSM to produce hydrogen through a reversible metal oxide cycle.
1. Completed or simultaneously taking ChBE 4300 Kinetics & Reactor Design.
2. Minimum GPA at Georgia Tech 3.2.
3. Interested in continuing work on this project in Spring or Summer 2014 semester(s) for further credits or pay.
If you are interested, please send (1) your resume and (2) expected graduation date to Colby Jarrett (firstname.lastname@example.org)
