Luis Virla, PhD student of U of Calgary: Receiving the Kokes award was great honor and I am very grateful for being included in such a distinguished group of talented individuals. Kokes awardees are known for being change agents and leaders on catalytic research, and I am very inspired to follow their footsteps. The Kokes award enhanced my experience during NAM24 conference, not only by granting a very generous support, but also by providing an incredible networking platform. During the conference I was able to build numerous and strong connections with key players from industry and academia. Attending to NAM24 was a life changing experience. Sharing with others who are also passionate about catalysis and enjoying state-of-the-art lectures, encouraged me to work and push myself towards innovation and creativeness. I invite all students to attend future NAM conferences and apply for the Kokes award competition to have the chance to discover the wonders of catalysis research.
Yali Yao, PhD student of U of Saskatchewan: I am quite proud and grateful to receive the Kokes Travel Award and have an oral presentation in NAM to discuss my recent work with other participants specialized in catalysis. Kokes Travel Award offered us a great experience in NAM conference to exchange ideas with others in catalysis related to the work I am doing and discover novel opportunities and broaden my knowledge through learning from other participants’ presentations and poster exhibitions. It also provides us opportunities to meet new friends and visit the beautiful city—Pittsburgh!
