Assistant Professor Claire White leads the Sustainable Concrete and Carbon Storage Group (SCCSG) at Princeton University. The group is situated in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment.
With the world facing a climate crisis due to the effects of anthropogenic CO2 emissions and associated global warming, key scientific research is required to aid reducing the impact society has on the environment.
The SCCSG at Princeton University is a multi-disciplined research group addressing the sustainability challenge via two important technologies:
Recent publication - "Uncovering the True Atomic Structure of Disordered Materials: The Structure of a Hydrated Amorphous Magnesium Carbonate (MgCO3⋅3D2O)" is available as a Just Accepted Manuscript in Chemistry of Materials.
