Citation name

Asokan, C.





Chithra Asokan completed her B.S in Chemical Engineering at the University of Illinois in Chicago in 2010. Directly after graduating UIC, she worked at UOP (a Honeywell Company) as a Development Engineer in the Olefins and Detergents research group (2010-2012) and a Continuous Catalyst regeneration (CCR) Reformer chief advisor in field serves, where she traveled to refinery locations worldwide (2012-2015). Chithra is currently a doctoral candidate in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, working with Professor Phillip Christopher. Her doctoral research work focuses on characterizing and understanding the uniquic reactivity atomically dispersed Rh active sites for NO reduction in automotive catalysis to prevent NH3 production, in collaboration with Ford Motor, and will potentially have a high impact on how the Three-way Catalyst is formulated in the future. She was granted the Mellichamp Sustainability Fellowship in 2018 and 2019.
