Direct Air Capture Team
Hi my name’s Sebastian! I love everything culinary, music and whatever recent rabbit hole of culture I’ve fallen down
Hey y’all! My name’s Grant and I’m one of the Policy team leads for the ’21-’22 academic year. In my free time, I like to camp, hike, play soccer, and listen to and play music with my friends. I’m a Government major planning to go to law school, but I’m interested in energy policy and environmental justice. If you’re like me and aren’t a STEM major but still want to contribute, the Policy team might be the place for you! We welcome anyone who’s passionate about removing emissions from our atmosphere to fight against global warming. Please feel free to contact me or any of the leadership team about anything!
Hi my name is Vilasini! I’m a sophomore and my interest in net negative emissions began at the beginning of quarantine! My dad and my brother both work in energy companies transitioning from fossil fuels to renewables. Both of them sparked my curiosity towards finding sustainable solutions for our atmosphere and carbon capture technology peaked my interest the most. As a policy co-lead I’m looking forward to spreading awareness on campus focusing on explaining why net negative emissions are important, gaining traction at the local and state levels for more funding towards CCUS tech, and learning more about government backed programs (like carbon credits) and their ability to make a greener future more feasible and achievable!
Outreach and Recruitment
To introduce myself, I am a sophomore that is majoring in chemical engineering looking into the subfields of optimization and sustainability. I am very excited to be the outreach and recruitment officer for the NET project and I’ll be helping with connecting the university students to the NET research directors. I hope I can share my love for NETs with as many people as possible to educate my fellow Longhorns.

Hey! I’m Katrina, and I’m studying Mechanical Engineering. I was born and raised in Austin. One of my favorite things to do is hike in the mountains where I won’t die of heat exhaustion. I’m also super passionate about health/fitness and of course the environment.
