Hasan will use the award to research accurate and efficient characterization of gas adsorption inside microporous materials (zeolites and metal-organic frameworks) for energy applications, such as methane separation and storage, carbon capture and hydrogen separation. 

“This award is substantial because it comes with a significant prestige due to its rigorous peer-review and selection process," said Hasan. "The award will also enhance my research for the design and discovery of novel materials and processes for energy applications."
