Brandon Tapia
Undergraduate Student

Brandon is a Visiting Undergraduate Student for the Summer of 2023. His research covers physical aging of CANAL polymers for gas separations and would also involve some computational simulation work. Currently, he is a senior at Virginia Tech pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with minors in Economics, Green Engineering, and Chemistry. At Virginia Tech, his research is under Dr. Stephen Martin where he focuses on amine-functionalized activated carbon for direct air carbon capture with an emphasis on humid environments. His past internship in industry surrounded developing statistical models for predicting GHG emissions from oil and gas capital projects. When not in lab you can find him listening to music (usually Glass Animals), playing sports (any), or burning my dinner!
