Food for Thought: Lijun Liu and Damien Guironnet
Center for Advanced Study
Levis Faculty Center, Room 210
919 W. Illinois, Urbana
11:00am, Lijun Liu, Structure and Evolution of the Continental Lithosphere
Continents are considered buoyant tectonic units that have been passively drifting at Earth’s surface since their formation in the geological past. However, many lines of evidence suggest that the seemingly stable continents actually deformed and evolved over time. Professor Liu will investigate this paradox and its implications on Earth’s environmental changes.
Noon, Damien Guironnet, Dealing with Plastic Waste: Upstream and Downstream Strategies
Professor Guironnet will present on recent chemical advances made by his lab on how commodity plastic waste can be turned into valuable chemicals through two distinct strategies based on catalysis.
