Jonah Williams

Ph.D. Candidate

Jonah Williams joined the Columbia University EEE M.S./Ph.D. program after graduating from Rutgers University and working for a chemical technology and licensing company. His background and experience includes the design and modeling of conventional chemical process technologies, including power generation, petrochemicals, gasification, and biomass-based energy. At Rutgers, he worked with Charles Dismukes on improving and categorizing algal-based biofuel candidates through genetic engineering. Within the Park Group, his research interests are broadly in the realm of Carbon Capture Storage and Utilization (CCSU) including carbon mineralization, alkaline thermal treatment (ATT), calcium looping, and chemical carrier combustion - all with the goal of reducing emissions while delivering sustainable process improvements.
