10/30/2008 Archived Entry: "Students Explain Energy Projects to State Legislators"
Ying Shu (graduate student) and Daniel Ampleford (undergraduate) presented their energy research before a group of state legislators recently to illustrate energy projects under investigation by students at the University of Kentucky. Daniel, a chemical engineering student, is in his second co-op semester with the CAER and is working on carbon capture in power plants. His talk was entitled "Post Combustion CO2 Capture Research."
Ying came to UK to work with Dept. of Chemistry Professor John Anthony on materials chemistry. Her presentation highlighted the importance of basic research as a means of developing the new materials that will let us address energy issues for the future and was titled "High Value Carbon Materials for Energy Generation and Efficiency."
The group hearing the presentations was the state Interim Joint Committee on Energy, which met on UK's campus.
