CENTC Student William Ou is Regional Finalist in 2013 Siemens Competition

William Ou
William Ou from the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science at the University of North Texas has been named a regional finalist in the 2013 Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology. William's research uses computations to model catalyst reactivity for an "aldehyde-water shift" reaction, with potential applications in biomass transformations, fine chemical synthesis, and renewable hydrogen production. This work with Tom Cundari at the University of North Texas is in collaboration with CENTC researchers at the University of Washington, University of California-Santa Barbara and Los Alamos National laboratory.

The Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology recognizes achievement in science research by high school students. William will be presenting a poster at the regional competition at the University of Texas at Austin November 8-9 for a chance to appear at the national finals in December in Washington, D.C.
