Gennady Gor

Principal Investigator, RA3–FA2

Dr. Gor’s research is on porous materials. Synthetic nanoporous materials are employed in the chemical industry as adsorbents,catalysts and separation membranes, etc. Naturally occurring nanoporous materials include coal and shale, key fuels in the production of energy. In the past decade Dr. Gor has been developing and applying theoretical and computational methods to solve a wide spectrum of engineering problems related to porous materials and solid-fluid interfaces. Dr. Gor’s research has been published in more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals, including Langmuir, Carbon, Applied Physics Letters, and many others. Prior joining NJIT he worked at Rutgers University, Princeton University and Naval Research Laboratory. He is the recipient of the National Research Council Associateship (2014) and the NSF CAREER Award (2020).
