CORC presents CO₂ research speaker series
CORC invites researchers, policymakers, industry partners, entrepreneurs and stakeholders to participate in our monthly CO₂ research talks. We invite experts to share their research and expertise on the CO₂-energy-food-water-socio-economics nexus. The research talk series will be streamed online. We are honoured to present Dr. Jennifer Wilcox from the US Department of Energy as our first speaker on 14 September.
CORC will host monthly online research talks with experts within CO2, energy-food-water-socioeconomics nexus and other relevant topics on climate change to share knowledge, raise awareness of the center’s mission and with a focus on intensifying the amount of research in these fields. Each session consists of two lectures of 20 mins followed by a short Q&A. While the first speaker is external, the second speaker will be a CORC-internal researcher.
Presenting Dr. Jennifer Wilcox as first speaker
Our first research talk will take place on 14 September 2022, and we are proud and honored to present Dr. Jennifer Wilcox as our first speaker.
Dr. Wilcox is the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management at the US Department Of Energy. She is on leave as the Presidential Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Wilcox holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and an M.A. in Chemistry from the University of Arizona, as well as a B.A. in Mathematics from Wellesley College. Dr. Wilcox's research takes aim at the nexus of energy and the environment, developing both mitigation and adaptation strategies to minimize negative climate impacts associated with society's dependence on fossil fuels. She has served on committees of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Physical Society to assess carbon capture methods and impacts on climate. She is the author of the first textbook on carbon capture, Carbon Capture, published in March 2012. She also co-edited the CDR Primer on carbon dioxide removal in 2021.
Join us online for her talk about carbon capture technologies and US climate mitigation strategies!
