My name is João Victor Poli, I am a first-generation student from Brazil. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering and now I am pursuing a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Kansas. My research interests are in Waste-to-Energy (WtE) technologies such as pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction, and gasification of a wide variety of feedstocks/waste. While I am not doing research or my activities related to my degree, I like to play tennis. I am the advisor for the KU Tennis Club, a very fun association at KU.
