Dr. Plaifa Hongmanorom becomes an FNRS postdoctoral researcher and gets 3 more years to develop innovative solutions for CO2 hydrogenation!  

September 19, 2022

Dr. Hongmanorom is a chemist from Thailand. In 2017, she received the Singapore International Graduate Award (SINGA) to pursue her PhD studies in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore. Her past research has focused on the development of nano-catalysts and kinetic and mechanistic studies for C1 (CO, CO2 and CH4) chemistry, including CO2 hydrogenation, water-gas shift and reforming reactions. She obtained her Ph.D. in 2021 and has already made a significant contribution to the field (see for example here). She joined our group as a postdoctoral researcher in January 2022 to work on the tailored heterogeneous catalysts for CO2 methanation. In particular, she is developing tailored metal-doped mesoporous supports (via aerosol-assisted sol-gel) for Ru-based methanation catalysts. With her recent appointment as an FNRS postdoctoral fellow (as of October 2022), we get to enjoy her presence and to benefit from her expertise, for 3 more years!
