James Sinoimeri to Present at International Exchange with German Chemical Society (GDCh)
While working in the laboratory of ChE Assistant Professor Sidi A. Bencherif, BS/MS chemical engineering student James Sinoimeri, E’21, has been invited to present his research in a highly selective international exchange program. James will be representing the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS) as a formal guest of the Jungchemikerforum (Young Chemists Committee, JCF) of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (German Chemical Society, GDCh).
The GDCh is the largest chemical society in continental Europe with members from both academia and industry. The GDCh supports chemistry in teaching, research, application, and promotes the greater understanding of chemistry in the public. The society was founded in 1949, but builds on a long tradition that began in 1867 in Berlin.
For a full week in late March 2020, James will be joining 11 other distinguished student delegates and 3 senior chemists in Cologne, Germany to visit German academic and industrial research facilities, to disseminate research at the prestigious GDCh Spring Symposium, and to engage in a wide variety of social events with students from across Germany and around the world. The GDCh Spring Symposium is one of the largest scientific conferences for young scientists in Europe, connecting young chemists and chemical engineers with themselves, with local and international companies, and with experienced professionals.
