Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Prof. Pagán-Torres was born and raised in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. She completed her BS studies in Chemical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez and her PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Besides conducting research and educating students, Prof. Pagan enjoys spending time with her family and traveling.
The Pagán-Torres research group at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez focuses on the development of heterogeneous catalytic materials for the conversion of biomass derived resources and carbon dioxide to fuels and chemicals. In particular we are interested in elucidating reaction mechanisms, conducting kinetic studies, and in the synthesis of novel nano-structured catalyst for the selective transformation of carbon based resources.
