Biography: Eric P. FIllerup earned his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from University of Utah and afterward attended graduate school at Pennsylvania State University. As a graduate research associate at Penn State, he was part of a team conducting research to resolve concerns hindering industrial application of materials for carbon dioxide capture. His contributions primarily involved altering the structure of the amine-based solid sorbents and determining the impact on sorbent stability, structure, capacity and kinetics. He had two invited poster presentations at US-DOE Carbon Capture Conference. In the course of the work he also supervised three undergraduate researchers.
