Monica Abdallah ChE'17, ME'19, a current chemical engineering graduate student advised by Prof. Simson, attended the 2018 AIChE Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA on October 28-November 2, 2018. The AIChE Annual Meeting is a platform for researchers, academics, and industry leaders to discuss innovative research, new technology, and emerging disciplines within the field of chemical engineering. At this year's conference, Monica presented her graduate research on "Integration of CO2 Biomass Gasification with SOFC as a Viable Pathway for Carbon Capture and Sequestration", which proposes an alternative electricity generating model that has the potential to be carbon negative when integrated with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS).

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
