University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Adam Sibal is a Ph.D. student in the Energy-Water-Environment Sustainability program in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. His research is centered on developing technoeconomic assessment (TEA) and life-cycle assessment (LCA) models for electrocatalytic co-conversion of point source captured CO2 and low-value regional feedstocks into value-added chemicals and fuels. Adam has a keen interest in the advancement and implementation of sustainable and equitable energy systems and chemical production.
Adam completed his M.S. in Engineering & Technology Management at Colorado School of Mines in 2015, and his B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 2014. Before coming to Illinois, Adam worked for 7 years on large onshore and offshore oil, gas, and liquified natural gas infrastructure projects as an Environmental and Process/Process Safety Engineer at ExxonMobil and Sempra Energy.
Adam enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, cooking, and woodworking.
