Nahla is a graduate student in chemical engineering who worked with Dr. A.K. Gupta.

Nahla writes, “For my summer training, I worked in the combustion laboratory [on] research that is concerned with sulfur recovery from hydrogen sulfide using [the] Claus process. I have been involved in both simulation and experimental aspects in order to investigate the efficiency of sulfur recovery from acid gas that contains different contaminants. This topic is very critical to the industry in my home country since the hydrogen sulfide composition in the natural gas wells is very high. Working in UMD [was] an unforgettable experience. I have [learned a lot] about the Claus process and the approach needed to conduct different investigations. Also my technical skills have been developed while working in the laboratory. I believe this is one of the most interesting summer internships I [have] had.”
