Speaker on Carbon Capture & Sequestration: Roberta Poloni

Roberta Poloni earned her B.Sc. in physics from the University of Camerino (Italy) and her Ph.D. in physics from the University of Lyon 1 (France) in 2007 where she studied the structural and electronic properties of intercalated fullerenes under extreme conditions. Afterwards, she spent two years at the Insituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona (ICMAB) as a postdoctoral associate, working on the development of a first-principles method to determine the atomic structure of crystals with substitutional disorder (solid solutions and alloys). She is currently a postdoctoral associate at the University of California at Berkeley and the Molecular Foundry (LBNL) working on the engineering of new materials (mainly metal-organic frameworks) for carbon capture, by using computational methods.

Her presentation: Ligand-assisted enhancement of CO2 capture in metal-organic frameworks
