Meishen Liu is a Ph.D. student of Environmental Engineering at Cornell University, loves cats, skiing, and cooking. Meishen received her MS degree in Geography and Environmental Engineering from Johns Hopkins University (2017, US) and her BS degree in Environmental Science from Northeastern University (2015, CN). Meishen’s research interests include developing an advanced understanding of chemo-morphological coupling in reaction environments involving CO2 and developing coupled reaction pathways for the low temperature integrated CO2 capture, conversion, and storage. Key applications of these efforts include sustainable energy conversions with reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and effective utilization of alkaline industrial residues in the built environment.
