Dr. Jacek Jagiello is a visiting scientist at the CAER. He has spent most of his professional life working on adsorption phenomena and studying adsorption properties of non-porous and porous materials - with special interest in understanding and characterization of activated carbons. He received his Doctorate in Chemistry at M. Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland (1984). From 1988 to1990 he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in CNRS (Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique) Mulhouse, France where he studied Inverse Gas Chromatography. His second Postdoctoral position was at Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York (1990-1996) where he worked on hydrogen and methane storage on activated carbons. In 1996, Dr. Jagiello moved from academic to industrial research when he joined the Carbon Research Group at the Charleston Technical Center of Westvaco Corporation (Charleston, South Carolina). His research projects were primarily related to the development of methods for characterization of activated carbons and to the pore structure-based modeling of carbon performance for specific applications. His last position was at Quantachrome. Dr. Jagiello has authored and co-authored more than 80 scientific publications including two book chapters, more than 20 presentations at international conferences and four U.S. patents.
