A central theme in Professor Calo's work is the application of principles of chemical kinetics and transport phenomena to problems in science and engineering. Chemical rate processes, combined with transport limitations and surface-specific characteristics, are of central importance in a diverse range of applications such as the optimization of chemical reactors for chemicals and fuels production, the composition of the earth's atmosphere, or the solution of environmental problems.
