Neil is currently a freshman pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He is currently a member of the University at Buffalo’s American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), as well as UB’s Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW). Neil was also a UB representative at the regional North East Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (NEACURH) Spring Leadership Conference. His career targets are to create a cleaner and energy efficient word. His research will focus on developing heterogeneous catalysts for activating methane (CH4) at low temperatures, as this will limit the number of pollutants in the air.
