Carli Kovel

AY 23-24 PECS Student Chair

Kovel’s research in the Chirik group aims to decrease the world’s dependence on fossil fuels through the synthesis of bioderived polymers and fuels using sustainable catalytic processes, such as bioderived feedstock molecules. Another facet of Kovel’s research aims to create bio-derived jet fuels. Kovel is advised by Paul Chirik, professor of chemistry.
