Speaker on Carbone Capture & Sequestration: Ian Bourg

Dr. Bourg holds B.Eng. and M.Sc. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the National Institute of Applied Sciences in Toulouse (France) and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.  He has been a career-track scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory since Fall 2009.  His research uses molecular- and continuum-scale modeling techniques to probe geochemically relevant interfacial systems such as water-mineral, water-gas, or water-supercritical CO2 interfaces, water in nanopores, and thin water films on mineral surfaces.  A major focus of his research program is in the assessment of the fate of carbon dioxide and high-level toxic and radioactive waste in deep geological repositories, a global scientific challenge in Environmental Engineering.  He has published 13 peer-reviewed articles or book chapters.  He is a member of the Executive Team of LBNL’s Energy Frontiers Research Center, the Center for Nanoscale Control of Geologic CO2.
