Two Cullen College Ph.D. students received awards at the Spring Symposium of the Southwest Catalysis Society’s poster contest month on the UH campus. Matthew Oleksiak and Manjesh Kumar received top honors for their posters, “Controlling Crystal Polymorphism in Organice-Free Synthesis of Zeolites” and “Tuning the Physicochemical Properties of Zeolite Catalysts Through Molecular Design,” respectively.

The Southwest Catalysis Society is a branch of the North American Catalysis Society, a group focused on promoting and encouraging the growth and development of the science of catalysis. Oleksiak and Kumar both work with chemical and biomolecular engineering professor Jeff Rimer as their advisor, who has also recently published new findings on zeolite growth.
