Dr. Susana Garcia, assistant professor in Renewable Energy, recently joined IMPEE from Spanish National Coal Research Institute, Oviedo.

Her research expertise and interests include the following energy and engineering fields: clean coal technologies; deployment of adsorption technologies with solid sorbents for CO2 capture; new materials for CO2 capture; simulation of gas-phase adsorption processes; CO2 storage by different trapping mechanisms; experimental and modelling studies on the mineralogical changes and fluid chemistry derived from the injection of CO2 and co-injection of gas mixtures into saline aquifers; CO2 transportation for CCS and CO2 utilization.
