Zachary S. Campbell

Ph.D. Student

As I was growing up just north of Atlanta, Georgia, I knew for some time that I was going to be an engineer. However, it was in high school that I started to discover my passion for chemistry and developed my interest in chemical engineering topics like sustainability, catalysis, and biofuels. From there, I attended the Georgia Institute of Technology, where I earned my B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, with a certificate in Scenarios, Models, and Military Games. While at GT, I worked with Dr. Charles Liotta on a broad variety of topics in chemical engineering and organic chemistry, including switchable solvents, continuous synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients, prebiotic chemistry, and sustainable Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reactions.

With the Abolhasani group, my research includes catalyst screening and optimization for thermophotocatalytic reforming of biogas to syngas for use in Fischer-Tropsch reactions, and development of tunable solvents for more efficient separations.
