Santiago Ortiz Laverde

Pre-Doctoral Fellow Certificate
Chem/Petroleum Engineering


I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. My current research interests are chemical reaction engineering and process intensification for Power-to-X applications. I previously worked as a University Lecturer and researcher at Universidad de La Sabana (Colombia).
