Daison Manuel Yancy Caballero
NETL Support Contractor
Daison Manuel Yancy Caballero (NETL) is a Senior Research Engineer with KeyLogic Systems, supporting the NETL’s Process Systems Engineering Research Team (PSERT). His primary areas of expertise include mathematical modeling, data analytics, machine learning, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, chemical reaction engineering, conceptual design and synthesis, uncertainty quantification, process design and optimization. At NETL, Daison’s research focuses on modeling, optimization, and conceptual design of advanced energy systems, carbon capture, and direct air capture technologies. Daison leads the carbon dioxide removal (CDR) subtask within PSERT projects, which aims to advance direct air capture (DAC) technologies through further discovery and optimization of new and novel materials and processes capable of capturing the accumulated CO2 in the atmosphere, improving the energy efficiency of carbon removal operations. Daison obtained his B.S. from the Industrial University of Santander in Colombia, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Campinas in Brazil, all in Chemical Engineering. After receiving his Ph.D., Daison gained further experience as a postdoctoral research associate, first at the Brazilian Biorenewables National Laboratory, and later in the Prof. Snurr Research Group at Northwestern University.
