As a participant in the NETL Professional Internship Program, James Egbu pursues chemical sensing layer development including corrosion on-set and CO2 in geological formations. “As a researcher, NETL offers me access to brilliant research advisors and mentors and, more importantly, hands-on research experience,” Egbu said. “I have improved my skills in identifying pressing energy-related questions, answering them experimentally, and presenting my findings to the scientific community. Gaining this hands-on research experience in a national laboratory has made me a better chemist and materials researcher.”
