Gianluca Moroni is a visiting PhD from the Laboratory of Catalysis and Catalytic Processes (LCCP) of Politecnico di Milano. The aim of his thesis is the systematic investigation of the carbon formation mechanism at the catalyst surface during Methane Dry Reforming under different reaction conditions by means of a combination of operando Raman spectroscopy and microkinetic modelling. He joined the Weckhuysen Research Group under the daily supervision of Dr. Matteo Monai in October 2020, where he will acquire new expertise in operando methodologies and extend his study to other useful spectroscopic techniques in order to obtain new mechanistic insights regarding the catalyst deactivation process.
