Summary

Kalin Baca is a 2020-2024 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Kansas in the Shiflett Research Group. She holds an M.S. in chemical engineering (2019), MBA with a concentration in organizational behavior (2019), and B.S. in chemical engineering with a concentration in bioengineering and a minor in business management (2018) from the University of New Mexico. Her doctoral research is focused on the separation of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant mixtures using ionic liquids.
